NEW ROLE: Jimmy Anderson
NEW ROLE: Jimmy Anderson

EXCLUSIVE resort Desert Springs has signed up cricketing duo James Anderson and Mathew Prior.

The pair have followed in the footsteps of some of the leading names in sport by becoming ambassadors of the prestigious Desert Springs Resort in Almeria, Andalucía, south east Spain.

Anderson and Prior have followed the likes of Sir Ian Botham, OBE, generally regarded as being England crickets greatest ever all-rounder, and double Olympic Gold medalist Daley Thompson CBE, one of the greatest all-round athletes the world has ever seen in giving their backing to the five-star Spanish resort.

Burnley-born Anderson is the fifth-highest England wicket taker of all time in Test cricket with 288 wickets in 77 appearances and is currently ranked sixth in the world Test bowler standings.

Jimmy said: “Desert Springs has developed a fantastic reputation not only for golf and its additional sporting facilities, but also for providing a quality of lifestyle that all of the family can enjoy. That in particular is something our family is looking forward to during our visits to the resort throughout the year.

“It is a privilege to be an ambassador for them.”
