For the record Wrington scored 214-9 and Exiles managed just 72 all out. On his last game John had
achieved the keeper’s hat-trick: a run out, a catch (standing up) and, most satisfyingly, a stumping off the last
ball of his last match. Perfect! And showing how much gas there is left in the tank for a Frank Sinatra style
John has been a great servant to the team over some ten years, as an efficient club secretary for many years
and as a player peaking possibly as part of the league winning team of 2002.
His smiling face still adorns the Sports and Social Club bar wall in the team photograph. And no doubt he will
be seen propping up the same bar in person for many more years as a tremendous supporter of Wrington
cricket, and sharing his experience and personal stories of the many good times enjoyed over the years.
Thanks John from all at the club.
