Favourite Cricketing Memory

Too many to mention !

Greatest Cricket Success

Being big headed there are too many to mention – equally there are also too many failures to mention

Stupidest Decision seen (on a cricket field)

With Eccleston needing 6 to win off the last ball Martin Williams of Mawdesley bowling a length ball to Foz who duly despatched it, back over Martins head, into the corn field – can’t remember how I got home from the Red Lion that night !!
