Dulwich CC Alumni Reunion

Former Dulwich cricketers used the opportunity of the Australia Transplant XI playing the GB Transplant XI at Dulwich to meet together. Robyn Hookes was making her first visit to Dulwich to see where her husband David played in 1975.

Here are a few shots (courtesy of Peter Rochford and John Soldan) of the former players sharing a joke or perhaps sharing a memory of a particular game…..

Robyn Hookes takes in the David Hookes Memorial Shield match accompanied by her husband’s former team and clubmates David Woods, Peter Rice and Stuart Courtney

Back Row (L. to R.): Lance Keene, Peter Rice, Francis Bowyer, John Sunter, John Smith (Pres.), Andy Ford, Colin Smith, Jeremy Gotch, Stuart Courtney

Front Row: Jim Gibson, Andy Lang, Ginger Thurlow, John Lawrence, Giles Bowyer, Peter Rochford, John Soldan, David Woods

The former players share a joke about Jimmy’s career stats –  (L. to R.): Giles Bowyer, John Smith,  Andy Ford, Jimmy Gibson, Stewart Harmer, Colin “CC” Smith  and John Lawrence who was on the phone to Frank Jackson. John Howard can just be seen in the background

The former players interrupt looking at the team photographs to check when Eddie is buying the drinks (L. to R.): Edward Robinson,  John Lawrence, Tom Smith (son of CC), Colin Smith, Andy Lang, Andy Ford and Ginger Thurlow

Everyone enjoyed the day and we all thought that this has been too long and when do we meet again?

    Only just got in to the DCC Alumni renunion pictures. So good to see old team mates enjoying them self !

    Special memories of John Soldan, Peter Rice,Lance Keene, Stuart Courtney, David Woods, Giles Bowyer, Jimmy Gibson, John Lawrence, Colin Smith and of course my old mate Ginger Thurlow'

    By the way if Colin Smith is the ex Gentleman, Lanacashire player and London County Council employee then I played in his first match for Dulwich at Private Banks, Catford.

    Some debut 120/130 not out and 9 wickets for about 27 runs. We tried so hard to get him the 10th wicket.

    Please  let me know of the next renunion and I will make a great effort to get up to Burbage Road from Ramsgate
