Speaker:      Phillip Hodson    (President MCC)

Hodson has a long and close association with MCC.

He played his qualifiers for the Club in 1977, hitting a hundred in his second match, and was elected a Member in 1979.

Hodson has since played over 300 games for MCC and represented the club on several tours. He joined the Players and Fixtures sub-committee in 1987, became chairman of that committee in 1993 and continued to serve on it until 2000. He has spent eleven years on the main Committee, five on Membership and General Purposes committee and now stands on the Cricket committee and the Youth sub-committee.

An opening batsman, Phillip Hodson won a blue for Cambridge in the strong team of 1972 that defeated Oxford at Lord's by an innings. By the time that he played in the 1973 University match he had scored a first-class century against Kent, had taken six wickets in the same match and become a regular Yorkshire 2nd XI all-rounder.

Starting out in a small business in 1977, Phillip Hodson has gone on to become Chief Executive of The Oval group, the biggest privately owned corporate insurance brokers in the UK, now employing over 1,200 people and currently sponsors Leicestershire CCC and Durham MCC University.
