Graham Godfrey would be the son of Brian Godfrey the painter I worked with at Bannisters Builders. I think Graham played cricket for Newhaven at some stage. I played for Battle from the 1980s till 2006,they were always needle matches against the old home town.

Hi Terry.  Good to hear from you, I do remember you just, your parents lived in Wellington Road.  Your Father's name was Albert and worked in the offices at Bannisters . Played at Battle many times no sixes. I remember a good bowler named Mcniven Young got me out a few times.

That's right Graham number 31, dad worked for Bannisters for about 30 years. Tony MacNiven-Young was our captain, when he joined the club he shook us by the neck and made us a half decent team winning the league in 88 and 89. I only got into the first team if there were injuries. I was a genuine swing bowler and always did well in there but the regular bowlers were 20 years younger than me, I was in my 40's by then.
