Worcestershire unveils snappy new mascot

Worcester Editorial 18th Apr, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

WORCESTERSHIRE CCC has unveiled its snappy new mascot who emerged out of this winter’s floods.

Nile the Crocodile will star in the club’s NatWest T20 Blast and Royal London One-Day Cup matches at New Road, replacing Peter Pear and most recently Roary Royal.

Nile will also be seen promoting the county in schools and clubs, but Worcestershire officials are keen to stress Nile will be a friendly crocodile and there will be no danger to life or limb!

But the croc will be interacting with children and all sections of the crowd before, during and after the limited overs games at New Road this summer as well as overseeing the toss ahead of matches.

The decision to appoint a crocodile continues the water theme following the launch of the Worcestershire Rapids identity for the Club’s 2014 NatWest T20 Blast campaign.

Nile will make his debut at New Road during the first NatWest T20 Blast match on Friday, May 30 against Northamptonshire Steelbacks, where he will be handing out free goodies to lucky youngsters.
