Help me get in touch with old cricket chums

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Remember When? - by Mike Ben­nett mben­nett@thek­m­group.co.uk

OUR pic­ture from the past this week comes from for­mer rail­way works man Der­ick Perkins from Can­ter­bury Road, Ken­ning­ton.

It fea­tures the cricket squad cho­sen to rep­re­sent the Na­tional School that once stood at the top of New Rents in the town cen­tre.

Taken dur­ing the 1936/37 sea­son, Mr Perkins, now 82, fea­tures stand­ing on the right with the other 10 and 11-year-olds.

He be­lieves that team cap­tain at the time Lawrence Marsh, seated in the cen­tre of the pic­ture is still alive, and would love to get in con­tact with any oth­ers from the team that still sur­vive.

He can still re­call all their sur­names. In the back row from the left are P How­land, A Ros­siter, L Gard­ner, C Rolfe, R Shrub­sole and J Bar­den, and seated are N Hills, D Gard­ner, Swift and C Grey.

The mas­ters stand­ing at the rear of the group are Mr Wil­liams and Mr Lewis.

Any­one wish­ing to catch up with Der­ick can con­tact him on 01233 624767.

HAVE you got any pic­tures from the past you would be will­ing to share with read­ers? If so send them, with brief de­tails, to Mike Ben­nett, Ken­tish Ex­press Re­mem­ber When, 34-36 North Street, Ash­ford, Kent, TN24 8JR.
