Pat Murphy

Sports writer and broadcaster Pat Murphy retired from his full-time role with BBC Radio in 2017 after almost fifty years of cricket and football reporting. He covered international and county cricket, including home Tests from 1982 to 2017 – ending as he began at his beloved Edgbaston – and England tours from 1986 to 2007. Among his favourite memories are an exclusive in-depth discussion with Harold Larwood in 1987 and an hour-long live broadcast from the victorious England dressing-room at the Oval in 2005 after the Ashes had been regained for the first time in sixteen years.

Pat has written over 40 books including bestselling biographies of Ian Botham and Brian Clough and his latest book – The Greatest Season – an account of Warwickshire’s historic summer of 1994, when they won three trophies and finished runner-up in the fourth – is being published in spring 2019 by Fairfield Books. Copies will be available on the night.
