This is a rather less formal photograph taken a few years earlier at an unknown 'away' location. It includes Ivor Howe (with cup in hand), Jack Wilson (on right) and Doug Cordery (looking at camera). I think this was one of my first games for the club and I could only have been about 13/14.

The following is from the Basildon Recorder on 21 June 1958 of the Second XI at the match against Cranes eleven. I think this one is of particular interest as it includes Bert Lovell who has been the subject of discussion on the site.

Hi that's not George Buck in that picture I should know as he was my dad. He was the best spin bowler that Laindon ever had.

Thanks for remembering Ray Fisher. I recognised the name as soon as you mentioned it, Bill, but I don't think the other person is George Buck, who is someone I don't recall ever playing with. I think he must have joined the club after I had left.

The un-named player featured at the top left of the 1958 photo was Ray Fisher. Would the other un-named player in the back row have been George Buck.
