My 1st XV Debut

Created by Kevin 8 months ago
When Dennis Savage had expressed his disquiet with a Ventnor player the week before, it gave me the opportunity to make my 1st XV debut against Ellingham. Despite the reality of the game, and our loss,  Gus’s report to the County Press carried the headline “Big Squibb is Hurricanes Consolation!” No truth, but an ego boost that kept me trying for the next 40+ years. My lasting memory of Gus beyond the warmth and genuine affection he gave and received both on and off the field was his ability to deliver the most outrageous dummy pass i have ever seen. A fine man who i was priveledged to know. Rest in Peace Gus.
