Short pitch: back in the nets

My Dad once (or twice) netted with Surrey. That was back in 1946 when he was a 15 year old school boy.

The two stories seem equally as unlikely, but are as true as each other.

    Love the braced front leg and the index finger indicating considerable tweak… I’d guess the ball’s going to pitch outside off and hit middle & leg.

    Grandson looks perfectly balanced and relaxed. They say that skills skip a generation!
