Please take the time to have a look at Gerald Soper's newly compiled lists of Kent players who have represented England (GB)
A new section has been added to the Archives - National Successes. This document lists National events from as far back as 1946 listing Kent players who have achieved success. There are many events listed along with the years Kent players achieved success - Gold Cup, Silver Plate, Pachabo, Crockfords and the Garden Cities to name but a few along with Camrose trials and main EBU congresses such as Brighton and Jersey. Gerald has spent many hours compiling this list and it makes for interesting reading - have a look when you get a moment.
If anyone has any details of missing information from any of the Archive sections please email Gerald Soper with the details so he may add them to the archives, thank you.
