Synthonia 3rd Cricket Team

A photograph of the Synthonia  3rd Division North Yorkshire and South Durham League, during World War II. Mr Alexander was the wicket keeper. Apparently when a bomb dropped on the Synthonia cricket club square, the groundsman would not allow mechanical diggers onto the pitch, but wheeled all the debris away in wheelbarrows to protect the pitch, ‘it was a beautiful, beautiful pitch, no county could compare with it!’.
