As a former member of HCC in 1988 and 1989, I fondly remember saturday practices at kaisaniemi, away games in Stockholm and a phenomenal series of games in (soviet) Moscow in August 1989. It was a long time ago but the names Francis Looby, Ira Ebanks, Jawed Mahmood, Rakesh Bashker, Annand Sheshadri, Trevor Gill and Richard Walker spring to mind. I left Finland in 1990 and was wondering, do any of these veterans still play or hang out?
Ofcourse most of them are actively participating the club activities. They watch our games,participate in club meeting and activites. Anyway its nice to see comments from pervious veterans in our forum.
I'll inform Ira,Fransis,Ayub ... about your entry in forum whenever I meet them.
And of course to Sayid Ayub! I am very pleased that they are still actively involved in the club. The HCC existed as the only club in the country back then for Finnish Cricket and I am pleased that it has gone on to prosper.
