I believe David Alleyne was the last British -born black player to play for The Middle.
He deserves special credit as someone who emerged from a difficult background to reach the heights of county cricket. An exciting batsman on his day he eventually became disillusioned with the English game and ended up leaving the country with his family to take up a coaching career.
I, ve just remembered Scott Newman who was of mixed-race and another who is pursuing a coaching career. There must be others I've forgotten about.
Of the four you mentioned Freddie, all, of course, played for England, and whilst Wilf and Neil died tragically young. Butch became a distinguished coach and administrator back in the West Indies.
When I spoke with Flash recently in Southampton he was running an events company. as well as doing some work as a DJ.
