Missing trophy

When rain interrupted play at Lord's today I visited the Middlesex Room. Looking at the honours board, or wall of fame, I noticed that there is a glaring omission.

In 1990 we beat Derbyshire at Edgbaston to win the Refuge Assurance Cup. Perhaps it's not considered to be a trophy to remember by some, but to those of us who were there it was very important as well as a wonderful day.

Hopefully this oversight will remedied very soon.

And then there's the list of Wisden Cricketers of the Year which includes "V.A.P. Van Der Bill".

Nice idea, poor execution.

Yes, H R, that's very poor.

It was an exciting performance. A large number of our members travelled by coach from Lord's for an all-ticket match. The trophy was important, especially as it complemented the County Championship title which we also secured in September.

This one-day team was very promising and later went on to win the 1992 Sunday League title in spectacular style.

There is a need for some better proof reading. This is an avoidable error.
