Pavilion honour for Hick

New Road redevelopment to start later this month

Hick: retiring at the end of the season

Worcestershire legend Graeme Hick will have New Road's new £2million pavilion named in his honour.

Hick, 42, is to retire at the end of the summer having spent 25 run-filled seasons with the county.

The current members' pavilion has been in existence since 1899 and has needed renovation work on several occasions in recent years.

The new complex will be housed on its current site with the original building eventually being rebuilt on the site of the existing ladies' pavilion.

Crucially the new two-floor complex will be built above flood level after the problems the club have experienced in recent years.

It will incorporate new dressing rooms, a cricket office, the umpires' room, the players' dining room and a new physio-rehab facility.

Tom Graveney, who like Hick also scored more than 100 first-class hundreds, will have the members' lounge named after him in the same building.

The first phase gets under way later this month and Worcestershire anticipate the entire project will be completed by late April to early May 2009.
