Holdingwilley The second best way to enjoy cricket


Armstrong

Australian captain Warwick Armstrong was strolling round the boundary while Charlie McCartney and Warren Bardsley were making runs at will against Hampshire in June 1921. 
It was a sunny day and the Australians scored runs with utmost ease.
A little boy, all along, was following Armstrong. 
Armstrong, thinking that he was shy to ask for his autograph, himself asked for the autograph book. 
But he said he had no autograph book with him and had been following Armstrong to shield himself from the blazing sun!

 

Not for no reason 'The Big Ship'.
