Dear Mr. John Dillon,
I'm really sorry, I accidentally deleted your post. I pressed to go back, and pressed 'publish' but unfortunately it doesn't seem to. I did however write your post down - so here it is! (Sorry again!)

(Posting on behalf of John Dillon)

"The taller of the three local lads was my uncle, Jack Catlin, who was a follower and player of cricket all his life."
