While sorting out a bookcase today I came across a pristine cricket scorebook with only one match recorded in it. It was a match between East Midlands RHO, where I was a fresh faced 24 year old Security Clerk, and Burton upon Trent played on 9 August 1983.
Burton won by 3 wickets in the last over of this 15 x 8 ball overs match. The old game that became T20!!
Many people I had the pleasure of working with along the years.
RHO - Bennett (66 NO), Lord, Culpan, Bright, Waplington, Brewin, Rowland, Armitage, Penny, Chick and Borrett.
Burton - Bull, Bridgwood, Fairbrother, Baker, Armishaw (70 NO), Drinkwater, Peyton, Keable, Stokes, Holmes and Griffiths.
Those were the days!!
