    I will say one good thing about your town. We stopped off on the way down to Invers to cover a rugby game and the disused railway station proved an excellent place to surreptitiously take a piss.

    The "disused" railway station is actually a small cafe/shop.

    G'day All,
    Had a quick squizzy through the intro forum posts Think I am one of the oldest on this forum. NOT admitting to anything mind but my eldest son is older than 70% of you.So I must bring to the forum over 55 years of watching and playing cricket....NO computer skills though so do not look for quick replies.

    BTW I HAVE seen Bradman Play

    While Bradman retired after the 1948 "invincibles" tour of England, he continued to play club cricket and Testimonial "tests" for retiring players of his era.I was fortunate enough to be at the Lindsay Hassett Testimonial where Bradman score 17 and 80* in 1954.You need to understand cricketers were not paid a lot of money in those days[actually a pittance] and these special matches were a way for them to retire with a little bit of the ready.So, I have been fortunate enough to see most of the post war cricketers and played with some.My first coach was Ken Mackay and later Wes Hall to "name drop" just a couple.

    Welcome, JBMAC. In terms of active members you'd probably be the oldest, but I know that jamesicus, who's not posted for a while, had seen Bradman play in 1938 and 1948, IIRC.

    That's a marvellous thing to be able to tell your grandkids (if you have any)... and us of course, JBMAC. I'm sure everyone's quite envious. What can you tell us about his batting? Can you recall that?
