The story which has been circulating over the past couple of weeks is confirmed today on the BBC:


It mentions as stars who played there the Duke of Edinburgh and WG Grace (who only ever played there in a Festival game or two)

No Richards, Marshall, Mead, Greenidge etc

It doesn’t even mention Hampshire cricket! Terrible journalism but hardly surprising nowadays from the BBC.

But good news that the ground won’t apparently be redeveloped.

Opportunity for us to play special matches there ?? A return of a Hampshire team (to play the last Hampshire team that played there for an Adams Benefit Match may generate some interest and rekindle some old memories ?? obviously no macca but a lot of the others could still pull on a shirt. Add a special like Greenidge (still playing for Lashings). Getting excited already
