Pop star Olly Murs watches as Suffolk cricket battle Hertfordshire at Copdock
Suffolk cricket had an unlikely celebrity fan watching on as they battled Hertfordshire in the Minor Counties Championship yesterday – pop star Olly Murs.
Murs, from Witham, is more well known as a football fan and player – he’s on the books of Coggeshall Town, has also played for Witham and is known to be a huge Manchester United fan.
Of course, he recently wowed crowds at Colchester United’s Weston Homes Stadium too.
Yesterday, X Factor star Murs watched on at Copdock as Eastern Division table-toppers Suffolk hosted Hertfordshire on day one of three in the Unicorns Championship clash.
And he saw a fairly even day, with Hertfordshire impressing on the way to 328 for 9.
Tom Rash took three wickets, while Hugo Douglas claimed two. Suffolk finished on 42-1 in reply.
