What are your fondest memories of Cambridge Sport and The Hawks’ Club?

See above… and watching Tim Wigmore save a penalty flick to help the Wanderers beat Oxford Occasionals in The Parks. Showing Phil the Greek round the new Clubhouse at the opening as President. Hawks Committee Meetings with Hoppy. Watching friends at Grange Road.


What do you miss most about Cambridge / The Hawks’ Club?

Incredible sport and friendships. Feeling a million dollars the whole time I was up.


If you could relive any sporting moment from your lifetime, what would it be and why?

Making 49 against Surrey CCC having come in at 12-6 and then been, I think, 13-7. We made about 130-odd I think. Not bad in the circs. 79 in 2nd dig also. Just felt like I was half decent.
