David Goodchild still playing for Eastcote in the Middlesex league, as is Alan Coleman.
Robin Sims still(?) plays for Ickenham in the same league. I think one of his claims to fame was catching the opposing captain having come on as sub in the Lords test. If my memory serves me right it could have been Allan Border.
Dingy, your right Gordon Harris didnt let us down in the few games he played as cover for absences. I think he also played a bit for Northants. He is the son of my now retired dentist, we used to have some good cricket discussions while I was in the chair, which made the pain more bearable.
Kervin Marc was a very quick but not always accurate bowler. Dont think he played many games for the first team and seem to remember an opposing county coach querying his action. I last saw his name as playing for British Universities and Oxford UCCA.
Also playing in the Middx league is Alistair Fraser for Stanmore. His lesser known brother Angus also turned out once or twice last season.
I have a feeling the bowler refered to as an amputee was the guy, name escapes me, who was picked for an England tour but pulled out with a back problem that all but ended his career. He then went on to become a pilot in the Carribean.
I have not checked any of this, so any errors I apologise for.
