Hampshire Cricket History

A Good Night

The verdict seemed to be that people enjoyed themselves in the company of our 12 living official captains, plus their most regular/notable deputies (Trevor Jesty, Nic Pothas, Shaun Udal, Will Kendall, David Gower). I had a lovely night.

The stage conversations came in two sections – six Northlands Road captains (inc Robin) and six Ageas Bowl captains. Here is Kevan James talking to the second group. He did an excellent job all night as MC, and is now on the road to Chelmsford – probably a little tired!

On the main table in front of the stage you might spot Bob Stephenson & Richard Gilliat and behind in pale blue shirt, Nick Pocock.

The guys met in our favourite location, Beefy’s, to do lots of signing and very willing they were, but there was time for conversations:


(L-R) Jimmy Adams, Dimi, Bob Stephenson (hidden), Nick Pocock (at the bar), SW and John Crawley but I can’t figure out the man behind JC (looks like Michael Vaughan, but I don’t recall him being there)

There were plenty of media crews around as there’s a big game there tomorrow apparently – they took some opportunities:

I watched the interview with Robin and Warne. Glad to say they were both against the new ‘hundred’. Mind you, isn’t everyone against it apart from those that matter.

Good to see Richard Gilliat prominent.

Excellent and unique evening, well put together and well done Dave for your contribution. We had an hour with Nick Pocock, our Captain for the night with some lovely stories.
