Antigua,Stanford Super series.
Yea,great memories.
It was the first time I actually met Kev,although saw him a few times at grounds around the country following Middlesex.
After our t20 win,I said to friends I'm going to Antigua,I couldn't miss the opportunity of seeing Middlesex play in the West Indies (little did we know what was going to happen later with the host).
Exchanged phone numbers with Kev via here,and I get a text off him the day before my flight,saying he is in the bar at Gatwick,waiting for me and where am I?
Panic sets in,am I going to miss my flight as still at home! No,I'm flying day after!
We arranged to meet at Jolly Beach Resort when I arrive.
Travelling with an organised tour,was a complete disaster in my eyes,nobody at Gatwick,nobody on the flight,and I got left behind at Antigua Airport by the coach to hotel as I was looking for my suitcase.
I had to share a cab with two strangers to hotel.
Won't go into rest of the poor organising,will go on for far too long!
So,at reception,I message Kev,who arrived to say hello,I checked in,he went to the first Stanford game,it wasn't Middlesex involved so didn't miss much!

It was a damn good trip,sadly our cricket didn't join in!
Lost all 3,but was great to see Middlesex in West Indies and get to know Kev,and we have formed a damn good friendship.
All inclusive resort,meant long nights/mornings at the beach side bar!
