SKIRTON, Alan. Somerset Cricket League Div 1, ball is re-cycled to me at cover/mid-off Skirt tells me to hold on to the ball and 'walk his way" to his mark. Eventually he asks for the ball but walks another 20 yds to the boundary, 10 yds from the sight-screen! Spectators, umps and players are wondering what the hell is going on! At tea skirt reveals to me that he had his transistor radio hidden behind the sight-screen and he was listening/waiting for a 3:30 race result...I swear this is the truth. What a character and good mate.

SKIRTON, Alan. My fondest memory of Alan was when he scored a cracking goal against Tottenham just before christmas 1962. It was Jimmy Greaves second match for Tottenham and he was on 99 goals. All the papers were saying he would easily get at least 2. But he didn't and we won 2-1. A very Happy Xmas.
