This would be the last summer at the 'old' grammar school on Wigan Lane. That's me (Alan Clark) second from the last on the front row. Only other person I recognise is Barry Cross, first on the right, back row. I was at Chester-Le-Street on the glorious 12 August 2013 when we won the Ashes late in the day. My thanks to the old style teachers Gerry Tait and Mr Dewhurst (Latin?) for nurturing my love of cricket extra curricular.

Corrections required. I am second from the left on the front row and that is definitely NOT Barry Cross on the back row. Apologies if anyone read that before my corrections and was confused.

Back row:Myself, Peter Foggan, Alan Wilcock, Robin Hughes, Dave Tattum. Front row:Terry Gleave,Alan Clarke, Ian Lord, Martin Dobb and Alan Prescott. Only one missing Jean Disley (now Wadsworth) the scorer.

Sorry. Missed Geoff Brown. Between Martin and Alan. Robin Hughes 2nd from right, back row. .You think Jimmy can swing it!? Geoff could bend it sideways!
