Game of Thrones star unveils 'cricket chair'

ACTOR David Bradley has swapped the iron throne for one made entirely out of cricket bats.

The Game of Thrones star, who lives in Stratford, helped unveil the UK’s first ‘cricket chair’ – the brainchild of cricket fan Harry Dyke – at Hilliers farm shop in Alcester, where the 22 year-old works.

The chair is being donated to the charity fundraising Bunbury Cricket Club – started in the 1980s by former Bee Gees manager David English as a annual tournament for school children.

It took over 70 hours for craftsman Ian Heslop to complete the chair which is made entirely of bats donated by manufacturer Gunn and Moore – a sponsor of the charity.

Harry said: “I have been a member of the Bunbury cricket team three years now and I always wanted to show my appreciation and thanks to David in a very unique way, and that is where the idea came from.

“I wanted to give something back to him for all he has done for the game itself.

“I thought was absolutely delighted Mr Bradley agreed to help with the unveiling and thank him for being so supportive of the project.”
