Former England cricketer James Taylor announced for BP3 2018

The Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship is delighted to reveal that ex-England and Nottinghamshire cricketer, James Taylor, will be returning to Nailcote Hall for the 2018 tournament.

Taylor made his debut at the 2017 event, which saw him place third in the first Celeb-Am of the week, scoring 31 points in tricky conditions on the Cromwell Course behind ‘Harry Potter’ actor James Phelps, and Scottish rugby star, Max Evans.

The former batsman was capped seven times by England at Test level and also featured in 27 one-day internationals before his early retirement in April 2016, due to the diagnosis of a serious heart condition. Since then, Taylor has been a radio summariser on the BBC’s ‘Test Match Special’, and has worked with Northamptonshire CC in a coaching role. He also undertakes charity work with schools across the country through the Chance to Shine initiative. Golf has also become a major hobby of his, so it’ll be interesting to see how he gets on around the infamously tricky Cromwell Course.

Taylor is the first of many stellar names that are set to be revealed for this year’s tournament, which looks set to be the best Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship to date!
