Funny what the archive turns up. This picture of the world’s
greatest living cricketer (that’s BMP’s John Webster) and Geoff Boycott
dates from 1981.
But there is no truth in the rumour that Webster had approached Boycott
to take over from Arkwright to star in the John Smith’s Yorkshire Bitter
campaign or indeed make an appearance at a NABS boxing night.
What, though, might the pair have been discussing? A bottle of fine
bubbly awaits the author of the best caption for this picture. Fax your
