Great lad, great fast bowler. He was in Alty hospital with a broken nose when I was having my tonsils out in 1965 I think and whilst still under anaesthetic he grabbed the nurses leaning over him and gave her a great big kiss. Was he really out? Who knows?

I have been retired for 8 years now and I can confirm two things; You cannot work out how you found time to go to work and it is wonderful to be TOTALLY in charge of your life, with the wife's permission of course. Read me in the Our Town magazine.

Those were the days ! An international cricketer playing non league football ! If I remember correctly Ian Botham played for Scunthorpe but I can't remember too many others. I suspect these days there are too many test matches to allow players to follow other sporting pursuits.

Ryan Sidebottom's dad Arnie, played for Yorkshire as well as playing football for Manchester United and Huddersfield Town. The other that springs to mind was Leicestershire batsman Chris Balderstone, who was also a midfielder with Carlisle United.

Jim Cumbes, former West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper played for Worcestershire then went on to hold quite a high position in administration I think at Lancashire.

Going back even further to the 1950's Denis Compton played cricket for Middlesex and football for Arsenal. He played regularly for the England cricket team and apparently represented his country at football although those games were not recognised as "official".

As did his brother Leslie, though I do not think he was an international.
