Remember when he was out first ball for Burnmoor at Wearmouth
Taught me how to play cricket................well, he taught me how to play a forward defensive shot at a cricket clinic he did in Tynemouth about 30 years ago. He also high-fived me for taking a diving, one handed slip catch during practiceJust watching Captains Log on Sky Sports with him.
One my favourite players growing up, always looked cool as fuck batting in his sun hat against the quicks too. Took over the WIndies captaincy at a difficult time which ultimately pushed him to early retirement.
Whats the memories of other’s about him?
