Mike Beal

Last November I visited Mike Beal (holding the trophy) at his home in Holme-on-Spalding Moor.  He entertained me for over two hours with recollections of his times with Yapham CC. You can read about that below in the blog.

Mike passed away in March.  My neighbour Maurice Pickering, another Yapham veteran, attended the memorial service at Sutton upon Derwent, where Mike grew up in a farming family.  It was standing room only in the church.
