Entertainment: Johnnie Gee Grima & Guest Speaker: Matthew Hoggard MBE


Johnnie Grima was brought up in Australia where he played cricket for his school and took up guitar lessons at a very young age. After moving to Malta Johnnie became a professional musician and entertainer. He also kept on playing cricket all his life, including 25 years for the Malta national team. He is currently in charge of sports activities for the Radisson Golden Sands Resort and performs his nightly musical entertainment in a number of hotels around the island. The Marsa Cricket Club is grateful for the different roles he’s held on committees and his keenness behind the stumps and playing cricket hasn’t faded.


Matthew Hoggard MBE is regarded as one of the most successful cricketers to have played for England, having been part of the famous 2005 Ashes’ winning side. He was the captain of Leicestershire from 2010 until he announced his retirement in 2013. Previously he represented Yorkshire for 13 years. Achieving 93 England caps throughout his career, he was awarded the ‘Wisden Cricketer of the Year’ Award in 2006. He is currently England’s ninth highest wicket taker of all time with 248 test wickets and is one of only fourteen English bowlers in history to achieve a coveted test match hat-trick.
