Graeme Swann - FPC Fresh Awards Host

Our host for the evening is Graeme Swan, a former English international cricketer. Primarily an off-spinner, he was also a capable late-order batsman with four first-class centuries, and often fielded at slip. After initially playing for his home county, Northamptonshire, for whom he made his debut in 1997, he moved to Nottinghamshire in 2005.

He made his debut for England in 2000 but didn’t play again until 2007 when he became an essential part of the team in all formats. In 2011 he was a member of the England Team that claimed the number one world Test ranking spot. Graeme Swann was involved in four Ashes tours, winning at home in 2009 and 2011 and in Australia in 2010-11. He retired because of injury from all formats during the 2013-14 series.

Since retiring Swanny has become a steadfast member of the award winning Test Match Special (TMS) and completed two sell out theatre tours of the UK with The Great British Spin Off featuring Henry Blofeld. He reached the quarterfinals of Strictly Come Dancing with his partner Oti Mabuse and is currently taking part in the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 tour.

Married to Sarah and with three young children, if Swanny’s isn’t talking about cricket or dancing, he’ll be following his beloved Newcastle United or singing in his band, Dr Comfort and the Lurid Revelations.
