Players facing – is that Andrew Syed, rather than Matthew, playing alongside Carl Prean? Andrew was playing in the England first team whilst Matthew was in the third. Can you spot Johnny Leach in the audience? Colin Clemett, ETTA Honorary Life Member, is sitting courtside as is John McDonnell, ETTA Vice-President, who through Norwich Union sponsored so many tournaments during this era. Mike Watts, ETTA Vice-President, is on the far right by the wall.
