In the late 70s I used to watch Ch le St and while we had the flamboyant brilliance of Wasim Raja there was no one in the DSL who could match Greensword and that Phili side captained by Tom Clish.
He used to come in at No.3 and always seemed to get a big score without breaking sweat and then used to bowl with unerring accuracy while at the other end Wilki used to come steaming in putting the fear of God into all and sundry.
Does he still wear that Leicestershire sweater when umpiring? That’s definitely seen a few games of cricket. It’s amazing when you think about it he’s been involved in NE cricket season after season for 50 plus years. Steve Greensword most definitely a cricketing legend in these parts and it’s nice to see him get a bit recognition.
