Just about all of them clobbered me! I was a major target I was told after the game, which was rather flattering.Selim The Sot wrote:Did baldy Bucknall manage to collar you, Globby? He was a pretty mobile flanker and as an Oxford man I imagine he might have been gunning for you. Would you have come across Jez Janion before?

I played for his Eastern Counties side and for his President's XV against Northampton and Leicester inter alia.
He was a great bloke. I've not seen him for years. The master of the dive pass.
Here I am against his team.
Very much RIP. <Head bowed>
I was possibly the fastest man on the pitch that day but 10s were not supposed to tackle.
Not sure about Janion. Memory hazy.
My record book of all my games is probably ashes now. The newspaper clip was from my mother's pile of stuff which we sifted through after she died.
I've just removed my name.
