I’m assuming some of you will recognise the all-rounder with the ice cream, but the header refers to the other one – apparently he was a steward at Northlands Road but I don’t recall him at all. The photos came from Richard McIlwaine, from his days in the late 1960s/early 1970s when he was on the staff:

When John Arlott was commentating on matches at Northlands Road he used to remark on the steward who worked about where that gentleman is standing, but iirc it was not him, who like you Dave, I don’t recognise.

Can remember having pleasant chats with the father of the ice-cream eater in the 70s. He was a class act who cared.
