Thanks for a lovely article, Vic. I'm sure Paul Collingwood still has plenty to offer Durham and cricket in general.

Strangely enough Somerset's previous Head Groundsman Phil Frost told me today that Vic was Head Groundsman at Durham.

Good luck for the future Vic.

Thanks for taking the time to do this report Vic and share your thoughts.

Much appreciated. As you say, Paul Collingwood a decent down to earth bloke, always ready to chat with supporters.

Best of luck for the future to both of you.
