No Gentlemen

Posted by davidburbage on April 8, 2008

I went to see an excellent concert at the Wycombe Swan on Sunday evening with some friends – the band playing was The Orchestra, which are the last remaining “bits” of the former ELO. It was very good indeed.

It reminded me of the sad decline of any ‘good’ thing, a story I recollect was of the first cricket club, at Hambledon in Hampshire. Apparently in the minutes book, the club, which was founded in 1750, slowly declined with dwindling members and support, until the last meeting entry, by an unknown hand, read simply “No Gentlemen”.

However, as we know, all was not lost for the game of cricket !
