Our roving PGS correspondent reports that "Bob Jones joined Whyteleafe CC after Selsdon Nomads (the OP's Sunday team) packed up in the 1970s. I think it's the first time I've seen him with hair. Phil Vickerstaff played for and (I believe) captained Caterham CC during the 1960s and was a very good bat".
