John Inchmore rolled back the years when he appeared as Worcestershire Cricket Society's guest speaker at last evening's monthly meeting of WCS members and cricket followers in the Graeme Hick Pavilion.

The former Worcestershire paceman, who took more than 500 first class wickets for the County, earned rapturous applause after an entertaining two hours.

Nearly 100 cricket enthusiasts turned out to hear anecdotes spanning all facets of John's life and career, many of which were laced with humour.

The Reverend Mike Vockins revisited the role of asking the questions of John which he undertook for many years with the WCS before his retirement as the county's long-serving secretary-chief executive in 2001.

Beforehand he asked the packed audience to "enjoy" the evening in tribute to Worcestershire legend Tom Graveney who sadly passed away a week ago.

Judging by the positive reaction at the end of the evening, an enjoyable time was had by everyone present.

The Society's next meeting will be on Tuesday, December 8 in the Hick Pavilion when former England batsman David Steele will be guest speaker.

The traditional mulled wine and mince pies will be available to enjoy and consume at that final meeting before the festive season.
