  Cricket bowled over by mystery donation:  
PHUKET’S cricket fraternity got a “two-for” this month with the announcement that an anonymous benefactor has donated one million baht to help develop the new Alan Cooke Ground (ACG) in Talang.

Members of the Phuket Cricket Group (PCG) were delighted with the news, but are completely stumped as to who their mystery supporter could be.

One man who does know the identity of the donor is of course Mr Alan Cooke MBE.

“I was tapped on the shoulder one evening while out with friends and our new benefactor suggested that the ACG was an undertaking too much for one man, and offered financial assistance. That is as much as I will say on the matter,” a smiling Mr Cooke told the [Phuket] Gazette.

“PCG members are giving their time, knowledge and expertise, and at no cost. This becomes a significant multiplier in terms of the benefit that can be derived from the donation,” Mr Cooke added.

ACG facilities will primarily focus on cricket, but with the help of this contribution, other facets such as squash courts and a swimming pool can now be immediately considered, which will benefit the community and help bolster Phuket as one of the region’s finest sports destinations. – Neil Quail.
