At The End Of My First Day

Tina Brewster, a new Safety Steward at Trent Bridge, talks to us about her first day working here, and the fantastic facilities she has found!

Snapping away

Photographers in the ground have a big chance to snap some huge moments during the day with many photographs around the ground, not leaving their post throughout.

A photographer in front of the Radcliffe Road stand said “it’s been such a fantastic day of cricket with a big run chase developing here. I love days like this, exciting cricket keeps everyone going, I feel privileged to have a front row seat”.

What a fantastic day it’s been at the cricket for everyone involved, leaving big smiles on the face of fans, press and players alike, well England players at least.

Root the next Pietersen?

As Joe Root was caressing the ball to every part of the Trent Bridge ground I overheard a group of lads in the Radcliffe Road End discussing whether Root was really as good as stats are suggesting.

The argument came about as the discussion surrounding KPs exclusion from English cricket became loud enough for all to hear. “Root is a pleasure to watch and is technically very strong however he just churns boring runs out time after time”.

I heard one of them say. “KPs flamboyancy brings crowds out and makes you want to watch”. That made me ask the question will Joe Root score as many Test runs by the time he reaches the age in which Kevin Pietersen was discarded from the England team.

It is an intriguing question and one which all cricket fans will be watching closely as Joe Root continues to light up Englands cricketing future in all formats, including an eye catching display in todays ODI.

Keeping The Crowd Safe

Here Sue Storey discuss the importance of keeping the crowd safe when they flock to Trent Bridge in their masses to watch international cricket.


Mid Innings Break Ideas


What better way to get rid of those unwanted odd coins than to come visit the Positive Futures team at their pocket money stall situated below the New Stand.

Positive Futures is a project run by the Trent Bridge Community Trust which targets young people at risk of social exclusion and provides the structure they need to enrich their lives, develop their skills and improve their employment prospects.

We spoke to Jason who is helping out at Trent Bridge for the first time.

“My time in Positive Futures so far has been really good, it’s opened up lots of new opportunities for me and I’m really enjoying it!”

For just some spare change you could grab anything and everything from pick and mix treats, pencils, notepads and super soft cricket balls to remember your visit at Trent Bridge!

Entertainment pitchside during the interval

From Wellington to Trent Bridge

Sport has an incredible way of bringing people together from all corners of the world and cricket is no exception. As the compelling Royal London series rolled into Trent Bridge earlier today so did the buoyant kiwi following.

With the series on a knife edge at 2-1 to the visitors, the opportunity to catch up with some of our visiting support and see how they felt about the big match in Nottingham was not one to miss. One fan in particular had made the long trip from Wellington to see his beloved Black Caps in action.

Jake from Wellington has followed the Black Caps from Edgbaston to Trent Bridge and his whirlwind tour doesn’t end there as he looks to complete all 5 matches in the ODI, seeing the sites of the UK before heading back down under to New Zealand.

The confident Kiwi  told us  he feels the visitors can wrap up the series in Nottingham and inflict further one day misery on Eoin Morgan and his one day team.
