Hertfordshire Constabulary cricket team with Devon & Cornwall opponents - tour early 1970's

In the 1970’s I was secretary of the Hertfordshire Constabulary cricket team for ten years. During this period we had a very successful team playing regular matches mainly against other police county sides but we also regularly played two cricket matches against Stevenage Cricket Club in their cricket week and an all day match against St. Edmunds College at Old Hall Green near Ware. For about ten years the team went on tour to Devon & Cornwall for a week in May. I will attach two photographs taken during the early tours both showing the Hertfordshire team with members of Devon & Cornwall Constabulary.

  • Hi Paul

    Sudden brain storm – I think it is Stuart Burnett

  • Paul

    The one I could not remember I believe was Stuart but cannot remember his surname.
