Get yourself to Chelmsford next year and I'll save you a seat in The Pearce Stand. Possibly the same seat which afforded me an outstanding view of Notts chasing down 371 last June !
They've named a stand at Chelmsford after Stuart Pearce? In that case it would be rude not to.Summer of '77 wrote: ↑Wed Nov 15, 2017 6:06 pmGet yourself to Chelmsford next year and I'll save you a seat in The Pearce Stand.

Seconded, though I'm biased as I grew up with the club. Yes, the pavilion is fascinating, with many photos and artefacts from both Scarborough CC and past festivals/Yorkshire matches. One of the photos is of Bill Foord, who was my childhood cricket coach.johnsantaclaws wrote: ↑Wed Nov 15, 2017 2:13 pm

However, it would also be worth splashing out on becoming a country member of the Scarborough Cricket Club, just to enjoy 4 days of cricket perfection.
Yes, I was. It was one of the few times that the West Indies were defeated on the tour, though they certainly played with a full festival approach. The TN Pearce's XI included Scotland wicket-keeper Hamish More, who I spotted and approached for his autograph when he was watching an earlier match with, I assume, his wife. He said "You don't want my autograph... who do I play for?" To which I swiftly replied "Scotland!" and he smiled and obliged.
Ha ha, but no, this was some days before that Festival game. He was there as a spectator, so definitely not padded up!
