Just in case a few of you are looking out for the start of the series celebrating 1936, we didn’t play our first match that year, against Hampshire, until May 6.
We nearly lost that one, then were hammered by Kent in the second game by ten wickets. We were bowled out twice in that game for 99 and 119 and supporters were no doubt crying ‘rubbish’ when the news came through.
That season, to quote George Formby, ‘turned out nice again.’
Must be a moral in that…
