Not the one that I was going for, but related.

My exposΓ©, and I suspect what Brother Westwood was referring to, was that Henry was in the same class as his sister.
He claims that she was a better footballer too.

Surely there can be nobody else famous from Old Hill?

Maybe if we improvise?

And she's a better footballer than Carlton Palmer.

Eric Hollies, England test cricketer was born in Old Hill 1912... before my time but I’m sure Ron Moseley will be able to expand πŸ˜‚

That I didn’t know.

Good to see (greater) Halesowen blokes following the natural progression to play for our local County side.

I remember they said in practice sessions, at the Worcestershire club, they said he could drop the ball on the proverbial sixpence
