No Neil I Did Not Cry!

Neil Davies rang me up a couple of days ago. It was my first conversation with him since 1960. He was the lad that hatched a plot with Burnsey [Alan Burn] to get me out during an informal game of cricket. Having refused to accept an lbw decision [I was too far down the pitch – it was drifting to leg] from them they pretended to have me caught by wicket keeper Neil D. It was my bat so I went home. All the way to 42 Whitehouse Court. I did not cry Neil.

On a serious note how much can I say? It is not for me to say where Neil lives but I can say the following:

If he were to support his local football team he could get a season ticket for about 90 pounds.

His team were in the Football League a few seasons ago and hope to get back to it fairly soon.

It is not a brief journey from his home to the Derby County ground but on the other hand he would not be tired and frazzled on arrival at the ground.

    Indeed, Mansfield. Four plus years late.
