The aim of Cage 4 All is to overcome social, economic, geographic and cultural barriers and provide learning and personal development for young people by giving them the time and space to play sport and mix with others in a positive environment.

As the new Chairman, Colin will be bringing his passion for cricket, desire to help young people succeed, networking skills and his celebrity contacts book to recruit players from. Colin has already introduced Cage 4 All to fellow cast members of 24: Live Another Day, The Musketeers and No Offence. Benedict Cumberbatch, for one, is very excited to be part of the movement and will get involved in a Celebrity Cage 4 All Challenge, which is coming soon!

Colin says "I have been a long-time supporter of Cage Cricket and am proud to become Chairman of Cage 4 All. I look forward to Cage 4 All gaining national and global support and funding to bring this exciting game to everyone who wants to play, get involved and to make a real difference through sport.

"I have taken the role of chairman as Cage 4 All to promote social inclusion. As a Cricket Ambassador for The Prince's Trust, I have been involved in getting young people engaged in cricket for many years. We are working with a range of people, including some of the best people within disability sports, within the prison service and those working with underprivileged kids.

"I spent a lot of time on the streets as a kid, got excluded from school, into all sorts of trouble. Through the work of good people, community care and the right opportunities, I have been lucky enough to build a successful career. I really believe that through Cage 4 All children will get more opportunities to grow as people and learn important lessons. One of the most fascinating things about Cage Cricket is that everybody gets a chance to be umpire, to be responsible for the game and the scoring. When you have power, how do you use it?

"What many kids lack is the time, space and money to play cricket. They can't afford the kits, and if you're not very good at first, you may not get that second chance. You walk out into the middle and get bowled out first ball, then you walk straight back off. That's not giving everybody a chance to develop the technical and personal skills that cricket can provide. In Cage Cricket, everybody gets to play an equal amount of time in every position. As a young kid said to me when I was playing in Salford, "It's a really fair game." That is the whole point of Cage 4 All - to give everyone a fair chance."
