Geoff Miller, affectionately known as "Dusty" spent twenty years as a professional cricket player, representing Derbyshire, Essex, Natal and England, travelling to all the major test playing countries and playing with or against all of the present day greats. To which he freely admits "I wasn't one of them." In his own words "I was a comparatively boring bread and butter cricketer who was only selected in the team to allow all the brilliant flair players to perform with freedom." Apart from cricket, Geoff's greatest attribute was the ability to keep his team mates amused with his hilarious dry northern humour which he now brings to the after dinner speaking stage from his roots in Chesterfield. By virtue of the sport he was in, and the life he has led, Geoff now possesses a whole host of brilliant anecdotes and stories about himself and his colleagues which he relates in both, all male or mixed company. Geoff is now in popular demand up and down the county and overseas and has found his speaking career just as stimulating as facing Michael Holding and Dennis Lillee, or bowling at Viv Richards and Ian Botham (who he roomed with on tour for five years!). There must be a story or two somewhere from that ... and indeed there is!!
