I’ve had the pleasure of writing a monograph about Mike Barnard – Portsmouth-born Hampshire cricketer and Pompey footballer. We are both former Portsmouth Grammar School boys and the monograph was launched today (30 June) with a match between PGS and MCC at Hilsea.

The picture above shows Mike seated (centre) with former colleagues Leo Harrison (left) and Alan Rayment. Standing are Richard McIlwaine, another PGS boy who played for Hampshire in 1969 and 1970 and John Young with whom Mike worked for some years as a commentator on Hospital Radio at Northlands Road and the Rose Bowl.

The school also opened their new scoreboard in a ceremony performed by John Barclay and Mike.

Dear Mr Allen

Please could you advise me as to where I could buy a copy of your pamphlet on Mike Barnard?

Many Thanks
