GILKES, Michael Hard-core Royals fan from 1963-1998. Privileged to meet Gilksey when he visited with a view to buying my house in 2003, but we decided the back garden wasn't quite long enough for him to get up to full pace! Always potential excitement when he was playing due to his exceptional pace, so thanks for the memories Gilksey. My second all-time favourite royal (after Robin Friday!)
