Photo-a-Day (Monday, 11th October, 2010)
This really goes to the heartstrings,-haven't seen a live cricket match in 44 years!! (Come to think of it, haven't seen more than a few seconds on TV either!
I'm glad to see they are still wearing cricket whites, and not stupid colours. We need to keep some standards.
Played there when I was a lad, we didn't have a good pitch like this one, it was just a patch that had the shortest grass. It looks like they were short of umpires, useing a player from the batting team.
Good picture Ron, brings back memories.
I really have tried to enjoy a game of cricket because it is so English!But I always find it is so boring...When I was a member of staff at Winwick Hospital in the late 60s I even played for them as a bowler...Not for me!!
The red ball is top of the blonde person's head, forth tree from the left.
