i miss you friendship quotes

Arlott was born in 1914, (the son of William John Arlott and Nellie Arlott) at Cemetery Lodge, Chapel Hill, Basingstoke in Hampshire and spent his early years living in the cemetery lodge. He attended Fairfields Primary School in Basingstoke before winning a scholarship to Queen Mary's Grammar School and expressed an early interest in the local cricket matches. In 1926 he watched England and Australia play at The Oval, becoming a fan of Jack Hobbs, and later watched Sussex face Lancashire.

i miss you :)

After leaving school he spent 4 years working in a mental hospital as a records clerk (1930–1934) and then 12 years as a policeman (1934–1946) becoming a member of the Southampton County Borough Police Force, which later merged with other forces to become the Hampshire Constabulary at the outbreak of war in 1939. He progressed to the rank of sergeant, while stationed at Southampton.

sad love quotes and sayings

He played cricket at club level but would spend most of his free summer time following the Hampshire team both home and away. As a result of his regular support he became known to the team and this led to his one and only brief playing exposure to the first class game. He was watching Hampshire play Kent at Canterbury in August 1938 when they discovered they would be short of a twelth man for the following game. Being both willing and available young Arlott was co-opted and he travelled with the team to Worcester. In fact Hampshire had had to use three substitute fielders when two of their XI were injured and Cecil Paris, their captain, suffered a puncture on his way to the ground. The following day, the match report in the Western Daily Press named one of the substitutes as "Harlott", a local policeman and a Hampshire member. It was a memorable day in the field, with the Nawab of Pataudi scoring an undefeated century for Worcester in one of his very rare appearances on the county circuit. The match ultimately fizzled out in a tame draw - Hampshire 313 and 91 - 2, Worcester 413 - 3 declared. It was his one and only appearance in a first class cricket fixture and it proved to be the pinnacle of his playing career !

and miss you so
