A Scorer's Life In The Southern Premier League
9th September 2021

I first started scoring seriously in 1984 for my village team and was quite happy doing it for the next 35 years. It was very much village and even parks cricket often with few or no facilities. In the last twenty years my old team, Drayton Parslow CC, has played in the Four Counties Cricket League (FCCL) in one of the lower divisions and very much near the bottom of the cricket pyramid. I was also the club secretary and with my excellent chairman we basically ran the club and so I gained considerable administrative expertise and experience in so many areas.
