Broadcaster | Media consultant | Coach
Speaker | Event host | Auctioneer



Dave Fulton is a former professional cricketer who has forged a career as a sports' broadcaster, event host, speaker and auctioneer.

Playing Days

After graduating from the University of Kent with a degree in Politics and International Relations, Dave enjoyed a 15-year career as an opening batsman for Kent, captaining the county for four years. He played with some of the greats of the game including Muttiah Muralitharan, Steve Waugh, Rahul Dravid, Aravinda de Silva, Carl Hooper and Andrew Symonds, about whom he has many entertaining stories!

In 2001, Dave scored 1892 FC runs including 9 centuries and was briefly picked for the Headingley Ashes Test before a selectorial u-turn. He was, however, voted as the PCA Players Player of the Year by his peers. In 2002 he captained an MCC side (effectively an England A side) against Sri Lanka and he was still on England's radar when he sustained an horrific eye injury whilst batting in the nets at the start of the 2003 season, which resulted in emergency surgery and left him partially sighted in his right eye. Any international aspirations might have ended but he played on for four more seasons before retiring at the end of 2006 season, bowing out with 155 against Middlesex. In all he made 12,125 FC runs with 28 hundreds.

Life after cricket

After retiring Dave worked for All Out Cricket magazine and the Times before finding his niche at Sky Sports News where he continues to work as a Reporter and Presenter.

Dave has also found himself increasingly on the speaking circuit as cricket speaker, event host and auctioneer working for the Lord's Taverners, the PCA, the MCC, numerous Beneficaries as well as many charities and corporate organisations.

Away from work Dave is a father to two sports-mad boys, a mediocre but improving golfer and Chairman of Canterbury Youth FC. He also coaches young cricketers and helps run a cricket academy.

We have had the pleasure of having Dave Fulton host events for us all over the UK from Birmingham, to Truro, to the Long Room at Lord’s! He is one of the most professional MC’s we have worked with, whilst still maintaining his great sense of humour. His auctioning skills are superb as well, so he really is the complete package! We thoroughly recommend you having Dave Fulton host your event!

David Fulton is the consummate professional event host. He is engaging, funny and copes with everything thrown at him in a pressured environment. As a charity, it is vitally important as an auctioneer he squeezes every last penny out of the room whilst giving the impression to the bidders that they are getting exceptional value for money. I would thoroughly recommend David.
