Good beer.
Well kept pint of hand pulled Tetley is very nice. If you haven’t been here for a while the choice of beers is entirely different, micro breweries everywhere. Even the pub chains have more variety than the mass produced piss of old.

Sad to see Aussie cricketer Andrew Symonds has reportedly died in a car crash.

Anderson named in England Men's Test Squad

England Men's selection panel have named a 13-strong squad for the first two LV= Insurance Test matches of the summer against New Zealand starting at Lord's on 2 June.​

The seam duo of Lancashire's James Anderson and Nottinghamshire's Stuart Broad return to the squad for the first time since the Australia Test series earlier this winter.

Ben Stokes (Durham) captain
James Anderson (Lancashire)
Jonathan Bairstow (Yorkshire)
Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire)
Harry Brook (Yorkshire)
Zak Crawley (Kent)
Ben Foakes (Surrey)
Jack Leach (Somerset)
Alex Lees (Durham)
Craig Overton (Somerset)
Matthew Potts (Durham)
Ollie Pope (Surrey)
Joe Root (Yorkshire)

Yorkshire batter Harry Brook and Durham seamer Matthew Potts are called up for the first time.

Managing Director for England Men's Cricket, Rob Key, said: "This is the start of a new era for our Test team under the stewardship of Ben (Stokes) and Brendon (McCullum). With a blend of youth and experience, we have selected an exciting squad that can compete with New Zealand in next month's Test series.

"We have rewarded players in Harry Brook and Matty Potts who have had outstanding starts to the County season, and they deserve the opportunity to stake a claim at this level.

"It promises to be a mouthwatering series, and I can't wait for the team to start against a very good New Zealand side. It is a fascinating prospect for everyone connected with the sport in this country."

The squad will come together for the first time next week in a camp before reporting to London on 29 May ahead of the first Test on the 2 June.
