Ask him your questions on Thursday, November 7

CRICKET fans will have a chance to put questions to England selector and limited-overs coach Ashley Giles when he visits Rugby next month.

Former Warwickshire director of cricket Giles will join author Brian Halford at Rugby Library on Thursday, November 7 to talk about the latter’s new book “The Real Jeeves”.

Giles and Halford will discuss the powerful story of Percy Jeeves, a brilliant Warwickshire cricketer who lost his life in the First World War and whose main claim to fame is as the man after whom PG Wodehouse named his famous manservant charcater.

The England selector will also take questions from the audience - and the Ashes are sure to be on the agenda just a few days before Giles heads down under to help orchestrate England’s next duel with the Aussies.

The event will start at 7pm and tickets, which are free, are available from Rugby Library.
