Mansfield Colliery Welfare

Visit of Derek Randall April 1983

By M & P Marples

This photograph was taken by a Chad photographer in April 1983 and shows proud youngsters holding Test Cricket Certificates which we believe were being presented to them by the gifted batsman Nottinghamshire and England cricketer Derek Randall. Do any of these youngsters, now grown men still have those certificates and what did they do to earn them?
