We have had a letter from a reader. And it's a corker
Dear Mister Boycott
I hope you can help me, I am a big fan even though my Dad says you were quite slow and boring.
I am in the Under-15s and wearing a box when I'm batting is now starting to hurt. I get quite sore and swollen and when Mrs Prior was umpiring last week I became faint and had to be retired hurt.
Should I stop wearing a box?
Right Trevor. Your father's waspish remarks have been noted. Tell him I said fook off.
Now lad, yer box. I always used to apply a generous helping of linseed oil. I could slip into any box then. And loosen your grip. Too tight and it will put you off yer stroke.
When Mrs Prior was umpiring did she give you the finger? I got the finger from Dickie Bird once. In the pavillion. Right up the long room. But that's what test creekeet is all about.
As I said to Peter Willey, keep them coming. My corridor is always open
