Much needed shade



Kells, September 1940, Sussex coast. The Germans a thin stretch of water away.
The Wanderers 80 for 3.



Whalers send for a bat to rescue yet another Wuff 4 from the brambles.




The shadows lengthen over the Wanderer's innings, but
two greats stand tall in the golden light of the summer game.


   At 'The 'Dog' Gaf is so 'high' on Hoegarden he is spotted by
a paparazzo drinking an invisible 'pint'.
 
A fierce fight ensues  

  
Even the Skipper joins in, his mastery of Cumbrian fell shepherd
fighting techniques sends the tabloid pack, tipped off as to the
team's presence in the pub, reeling off into the night.
