Back Row: John Greer, Peter Johnson, Chris Dawson (me), David Killick, Dennis Wood, Malcolm Parsons.

Front Row: Kenneth Milner, Barry James, David Birch (Captain), Michael Price, Kevin Beasley.

I never liked sport much and, if I remember correctly, I was only in the team for one game. I did get 19 not out though.

Hi Chris. Great picture. As for the date I suspect it might be summer of 1962. I left Woodingdean in the summer of 1961 and David Birch was a year behind me. I was great friends with him and my sister was  a friend of his sister, Angela. She,  was a great athlete and went on to a specialist PE college in about 1966. I was also in the same scout group as David, 23rd Brighton.

Hi Chris my best man, I was in the year above you and Mr Betts was my form teacher.  He was a great teacher. I well remember Mr Haggard too. Hope you are well. We live in West Sussex.

Hi Paul, I remember you were in the same class as me in 1961 and Mr Betts was our teacher.

Hi Paul, Remember me? I was your friend in Selhurst Road and lived opposite you at No. 8.

 We also used to hang out with Chris Dawson (whom I've recently met up with). I'm also visiting Mr Betts in Cornwall in October. I see you mention you live in West Sussex. So do we. Whereabouts?
