Rosemary Webb Rehill Ah Paul, you got a mention!!! That's Alan Packham....I remember him too!
Sarah Williams Mr Bullock wasn't the man who lived at Little Wyre (the other cottage on the school site) was he? Ex-army, I can't remember what he did.
Paul Norman Oh the shame - caught for 0!
Sarah Williams It was probably extreme bad luck Paul.
Paul Norman You are very kind Sarah
Sarah Williams I've noticed that many cricketers are the victims of extreme bad luck.
Rosemary Webb Rehill I miss cricket! brilliant game! We did watch the World Cup Rugby! brilliant stuff!
