Warwickshire legend Trevor Penney returned to Edgbaston for last month’s Years of the Bear dinner.
Penney, now living in Canada, is still a specialist fielding coach, who continues to work on the T20 circuit following successive spells with the Indian and Sri Lankan national sides.
But opportunities to return to the place he calls ‘home’ are few and far between.
The 51-year-old joined more than 90 Warwickshire players past and present to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the club’s inaugural first-class game and the 25th anniversary of the legendary treble-winning team.
The night saw each past and present Bear in attendance presented with a special commemorative cap, embroidered with their name and first-class playing number.
The event also saw the 1994 treble-winning squad honoured by Westside Business Improvement District, which made a special presentation to mark the team’s inclusion in the Broad Street Walk of Stars.
Hosted by Pat Murphy, there were a variety of Q&As with Penney joining ’94 teammates Gladstone Small and Graeme Welch.
