Hampshire Cricket History

Six Days on the Road

Starting today. I’ve been heavily involved in tonight’s Captains’ Dinner, and enjoyed it very much. There’s been a lot of planning and coordination so I hope it works smoothly.

Tomorrow I’m back at the Hotel for a first meeting of slightly reorganised Hampshire Cricket Heritage Ltd which has been formed to protect all the artefacts, and to make progress on Heritage work wherever we can. There are Directors and I’ll let you know more about it, after tomorrow. I’m simply an invitee, having happily retired from all formal duties and titles but I’m pleased about the development and looking forward to being involved.

Then there’s the Test Match, including the return of my pals from the Royal British Legion’s ‘Thank You’ project. There will be lots of them there on Day One, and Rod is speaking at tea on TMS about Hampshire’s links with the project.

So why only ‘six days’? Well it fits the song title for those that recognise it, but (weather permitting) do we expect a five-day Test? I have my ticket, but will I need it?

And if you know the song, no, I won’t be seeing my baby tonight. Mrs A is not about to become a cricket widow, because she’s away out west, at her annual summer school.

Hope tonight goes well Dave. I wish I could have come but my wife is in hostpital today for a minor op, so I thought it best if I didn’t come. Looking forward to seeing the photos.
