Surrey County Cricket Club are happy to share that the commemorative range of Micky Stewart Oval mugs, that were produced to celebrate the renaming of the ground in honour of the Club legend last month, have already raised over £1,500 for the charity of Micky’s choice.
The Kia Oval was renamed ‘The Micky Stewart Oval’ to celebrate the club legend’s 90th birthday and to recognise his incredible contribution to Surrey cricket in an association that spans 75 years.
‘The Micky Stewart Oval’ will go down in Surrey history, as it was the official name of the stadium for the duration of the LV= County Championship fixture against Yorkshire between September 20th and 23rd – the game that would ultimately cement Surrey as Champions for 2022.
The limited-edition mugs were made available in-person at the ground during that time and all but sold out as member’s flocked to the Club Shop to celebrate both Micky Stewart and the fact that Surrey had been crowned County Champions.
The last few remaining mugs are available here
Micky, an Alleyn’s School alumni, is donating all of the profits to an initiative the school have set up which allows local state primaries access to their state-of-the-art cricket and other sporting facilities. The ambitious Alleyn’s Academy aims to enable social mobility through sport. It welcomes over 100 children every week for action-packed sporting activities run by Alleyn’s in partnership with organisations and individuals from the world of elite sport.
