  2. It was May 8th, 1971 at Thornaby CC. Norton batted first and were bowled out for just 46 with Harvey Madden being the top scorer with 18. Thornaby replied with 48-3. A bad day at the office (for Norton!).

    Back row, left to right:- Kevin Knott (scorer), Graeme Smith, Brian Armstrong, Lol Carlton, Bill Pickersgill, John Lowson, David Lewis, John Addison.
    Front row, left to right:- David Addison, Harvey Madden, Mick Branson (capt), Brent ‘Bomber’ Smith, Martin Smyth.

    Bomber is still currently playing, for Thornaby based Stafford Place CC in the Langbaurgh League.

  5. I’m sure the guy top row right at the end in whites is David Lewis as I used to go out with David in the 1970’s when he played for Norton cricket Club. Haven’t heard of him for years and would love to know how he is.
