THE second picture of Astley Bridge CC from June 1987 was featured in the sporting nostalgia section on May 24 and brought back memories for several readers.

Lisa Fairhurst emailed: "My dad, Roy Marland, who sadly passed away four years ago is bottom right with the cricket bat.

"They were a great team. I was nine years old when I used to watch these games and collect for my dad’s 50s, when attendance was high in those days.

"Second row, first on the left, is Karl Krikken. He went on to play for Derbyshire.

"Ray Eccleshare is the guy with the moustache in the middle and Mick Skinner is back row, third in from the right.

"I don’t remember them all or the tales they had to tell about the matches they played, however my dad would have had many to tell.

"Thank you for evoking those great memories – happy times."

Meanwhile, Afzal Munshi said: "My dad played for the team and is on the bottom row – his name is Farooq Munshi.

"The person in the middle of the bottom row is Ray Eccleshare."
