Your memories of your debut for Littleborough?
Senior debut: Glodwick away 3rd team 13 yrs old (I think)
Your favourite game and why?
2 games come to mind.
Burton cup final v Walsden we were 69 all out they ended 67 all out. Unbelievable team spirit and effort to defend such a low score – especially after Walsden part celebrating at the tea interval.
And, Wood cup at home to Norden; They were over-confident, due to their success at the time, good side basically, and we chased down a decent score with ease, hammered them.
Your favourite away ground and why?
Middleton cc: great wicket and atmosphere. Always great banter on/off field.
The best professional played against?
The best amateurs played against?
Mark Ramsbottom, Darren Shadford, Steve Oddy, Pete Wilcox, Will Purser, Bobby Cross.
Favourite on the field memories?
Clifton cc away – the infamous Gary Graham incident. It’s the only game I’ve played in, where both umpires had to briefly halt the game, due to laughing- simply hilarious
How about off the field?
Too many to mention.
St Helens cc away – national cup
Off the field, due to rain. Funniest day I’ve had in cricket (those involved know why). Lost my voice due to laughing .
End of season do – Brendan Miskella’s rendition of the 12 days of Christmas – Fantastic.
Old Trafford (England v Windies)
(Roughly a couple of weeks after the Gary Graham incident)
We all went as the Windies cricket team. At the interval- we’re approached by Gary Garner, not knowing who we were, until we spot him, and all point at him shouting Gary Graham!!!! At which point, he quickly vanishes!! Absolutely hilarious.
