[quote Longers]As for Colin Milburn, simply put, he was a lovely man.

Met Colin at the Wimpey in Gold Street when had just joined the ground staff, also there were Stuart Jakeman and Malcolm Scott and after a few meetings became friends with all three of them.

Bernard Sunley used to have a Blackwood Hodge side comprising local cricketers and some professionals who played at Ashton in front his house.on Sundays.

Some 2 years later I got into the side as a fielder and Colin was there because not only was he very good but he was a very sociable person so we reconnected and I shared many a pleasant evening with him.

I met him again at the Salon when he was an England cricketer and he came out of his way to come across and spent time chatting about the old days , strange as we were both in our early 20's and to his credit he was the same old smashing person, lovely bloke taken too soon.
