Chance to Shine to benefit from Testim-Eoin-ial

World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan has chosen to fundraise for Chance to Shine after being awarded a testimonial year in 2020 by Middlesex County Cricket Club.

Eoin has supported Chance to Shine for many years, seeing first-hand the impact the sport can have on children’s personal development and wellbeing. In 2017, he gave a special batting masterclass to Street Cricketers at the inaugural Chance to Shine Street National Finals Day in Wolverhampton. Following the World Cup victory, he returned to Lord’s in a bid to become Chance to Dine champion, preparing an assortment of canapés in September 2019.

Since making his debut for Middlesex in 2005, Morgan has made over 250 appearances in all three formats for the club, scoring over 9000 runs with a highest individual score of 191 against Nottinghamshire in the County Championship at Trent Bridge in 2014. Morgan has also scored over 9000 runs for England and notably led England to a historic victory in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Lord’s in July.



Morgan has chosen to support Chance to Shine alongside the Ruth Strauss Foundation and the Professional Cricketers’ Trust in his testimonial year. Eoin said, “I’m delighted to take this opportunity to support three incredible causes: Chance to Shine, Ruth Strauss Foundation and the Professional Cricketers’ Trust. I hope that we raise vital funds that will support the organisation in the fantastic work they do.”

“I have experienced first-hand what Chance to Shine do in schools and communities across the country and am very proud to contribute to inspiring more children to play, learn and develop through cricket.”

Speaking of Eoin’s decision to fundraise for Chance to Shine, Chief Executive Laura Cordingley said, “We are delighted that Eoin has chosen to fundraise for Chance to Shine in his testimonial year. He is a wonderful ambassador for the sport and has inspired children across the country to play and enjoy cricket.”
