‘Butch’ Tales

‘Butch’ White, like FS Trueman was often the subject of stories which may or may not have been true

This afternoon one of the Radio Essex commentators has been recounting an occasion when ‘Butch’ umpired and gave lots of lbw decisions on Day One in favour of Mark Ilot during a match between Essex and Northants which finished in two days (and presumably must therefore have been a county match?). Next morning, ‘Butch’ arrived and Mark Ilot said “Good morning Dad”

Which is a funny story except I don’t believe that ‘Butch ‘ ever umpired apart from one 2nd XI limited overs match. Does anyone know anything different?
