Nottingham receives Ashes plaudits
With Trent Bridge set to host the Twenty20 Cup Finals Day as well as a Test between England and Sri Lanka and a floodlit international between England and Pakistan, Brewer says 2006 will be another exciting summer for the East Midlands.
He said: ?The Test was a phenomenal success for all involved and the mark of that was not only a well-behaved capacity crowd at Trent Bridge, but also 10,000 people having a wonderful time at Wollaton Park.
?It was a great event for the club but it also showed in a wider context how well equipped the city of Nottingham is to stage big international events.
?The eyes of the world were on the city and everything went very smoothly. Local businesses have benefited enormously and with a Test match, the Twenty20 Cup Finals Day and a floodlit international, we?re already looking forward to another big year in 2006.?
Club photographer Sam Bowles was at the heart of the action, and has put together a collection of images from one of the most exciting Tests in living memory.
