Lots of Happy Snappers down Bournemouth way. Here’s one from Stephen Hope who says:

“Dave, many thanks for the recent posts on this. If interest has not been exhausted, a snap looking towards the ‘town end’, taken during the 1978 cricket week in a game v Warwks,  Dennis Amiss in a helmet, the first time I’d seen a player in one. Bright seaside light, the college clock chiming on the hour and a ground enclosed by back gardens, it felt rather like you were watching in one. Happy Days!”

The bowler is Keith Stevenson and I’d recognise those bums anywhere(!!): L-R Bob Stephenson, John Rice & Gordon Greenidge

Warwicks 286 & 222-9 dec beat Hants 207 & 264 by 37 runs. Greenidge batted four in the first innings but opened and scored 112 in the second. Hampshire lost from 185-1 losing nine wickets for 79 (Perryman 7-49, his career BB).

Oh yes and one of the two ‘scaffolding’ stands that were still in situ up to about 10 years ago!

One that got away, but three centuries from Gordon Greenidge that cricket week and one from Trevor Jesty saw Kent beaten in the second game. A few days later another from GG in a game against Middx and Sunday League winners that year.

Really enjoying these photos from years gone by. Looks like Surrey are on for win as well which is good news I think!
