1983 Warwickshire Veterans !

Joan Mills

Twenty years on from when the original photograph was taken, County Coach, Betty Galsworthy gathered together a group of players who had not played for 15 years to challenge the County U21 squad.  They trained for 4 weeks, and on the ‘big night’ in front of a 700+ crowd they took to the court for a 10 minute each way match.  The U21’s were fast and furious.  The Vets were steady and slow – with an average age of 47 years.  Did they last the pace – yes they did and had the added bonus of winning by one goal!
