Tonight we received an anonymous letter, shown below, providing details of our Professional for the 1962 and 1963 seasons as well as some additional information regarding our previous Red Lane ground.
This was Emmanuel “Manny” Alfred Martindale, from Barbados in the West Indies.
We were delighted to receive this information, which also included details of Manny’s bowling and batting stats for the seasons. We have added this information to our records and and it now means we hold a full record of all professionals since the club reformed in 1940.
We do hope over time to complete our Past Professionals page with batting and bowling stats, and are always appreciative of any such information which is proving otherwise difficult to attain.
Huge thanks to the author of the below letter. Please let us know your identity then we can credit your work.
