Plus all other old school cricket fans.

I played bowls on Thursday (yes I know I'm 38) with Alan Whitehead, Test Umpire in the 80's, pissed off Botham once.

All I can say is that he is a true Gent, A true character and a fun loving person to be playing bowls with, not only that he is a sh+t hot bowler even at 77

I play in the same side as him, so if any of you have some funny questions to ask, please let me know as I will post back.

Look forward to the feed back.

In regards to test cricket, I will be back, just taken some time off,

Much love all

Sorry Whizz,

Not sure I remember Mr Whitehead but I will think of some questions to ask. I might suggest you ask him about how to tamper with a ball correctly for starters though!

Is this the ump who called Botham for a no ball? I remember a bit about it in one of Beefys books

Correct TTT, him and Botham had a big falling out. Only just started playing with him tbh. bowls has never been so interesting.
