Manorway Cricket Team 1962

Manorway Cricket Team 1962
Paul Johnson

This photo was taken at Manorway school in 1962 and I am third from left in the front row holding a “Ted Dexter” bat which, in those days, was a real luxury! Luckily, I wrote the names on the back of the photograph and they are:

Back Row (from left) Tony Simmonds, Peter Tyson, Colin May, Andy? Hammond, Tony Brett Mike? Nicholls

Front Row (from left) John Deal, Leslie Morgan, Paul Johnson, Eddie Noble, Dennis Pearce, John Goyette.

I have no contact with any of these nowadays. I seem to recall that my father (Peter Johnson) played cricket with the father of Dennis Pearce (Dennis and I used to open the batting) and I remember Eddie Noble as a very good fast bowler.
