(A bit like the song but with a year knocked off)

Ajeet Dale H2s

This is 15-year-old quick bowler Ajeet Dale bowling for Hampshire 2s v Combined Services yesterday.

Sometimes, especially with photos of our youngsters, I’ve taken to posting them on Twitter (it’s all Jo’s fault). If you’re so inclined you can find me (even follow me) at davea60s.

Ajeet is at Wellington College and like me exactly 50 years ago, is in his GCSE year (although mine were called ‘O’ levels). His mum came to watch him and chatted to a number of us.

(Incidentally if you don’t remember ‘O’ levels (I passed Art & Cricket) you won’t get the song reference, but you can just Google “Only Sixteen” by Craig Douglas who, in another life, was a milkman on the IOW)

We saw Craig sing that live in the 90’s in a holiday camp.
Was cricket available as an O level. Sure PTHS didn’t offer it even with Geoff Elderfield around
