Everywhere Luke Fletcher goes he is still asked about the night he was hit on the head by a fiercely struck drive and the effects it had on him. Whether it is interviews, or meetings with strangers at the bus stop, Fletcher admits he is sick of talking about the harrowing scenes of July 9, when the shuddering impact of ball on skull had team-mates and opponents in shock at Edgbaston. Fletcher has not played since the NatWest T20 Blast game against Birmingham Bears.
Luke Fletcher admits it will be a strange feeling to play under a new captain at Nottinghamshire, but he says Steven Mullaney is undoubtedly the best man to replace Chris Read. The seamer had spent his whole career with Read as his skipper until the wicket-keeper retired at the end of last season. Now he will be led by one of his best friends in all-rounder Mullaney and the 29-year-old says all the players will give their all to back the new man.
Former Nottingham Forest striker Britt Assombalonga has revealed the sacrifices his parents made to give him a better life. Assombalonga was two-years-old when they left Kinshasa, the capital of Democratic Republic of Congo, which was on the brink of civil war in 1995. His father Fedor was a professional footballer but he took on a low paid job working the day shift as a cleaner at Abbey Road Studios in London. His mother Beatrice worked the night shift.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
