It was announced the club’s Annual General Meeting at the start of the season that Micky’s lifetime of service to Surrey CCC was to be honoured with the renaming of the Members’ Pavilion.
The historic building will be now known as the Micky Stewart Members’ Pavilion.
Micky will be joined for the occasion by members of the Stewart family and all attendees for the third day of the 100th Test are invited to gather in the Pavilion forecourt at 10.45am to witness the occasion.
In a 70 year association with Surrey CCC, Micky Stewart has been a player, captain, coach, cricket manager and President of the club – as well being the father of legendary player and current Director of Cricket Alec Stewart and long standing Academy coach Neil.
As well as his achievements with Surrey, Micky is also credited with transforming the coaching of cricket of England during a lengthy spell with the ECB in the 1980s and 1990s.
