Just Good Friends

Picked this story up at The Oval earlier this month...

Apparently at lot of the Surrey players went along to a retirement function in the Oval corporate suites at the start of September for someone on the county backroom staff who was calling it a day after a lifetime of loyal service.

Everyone was having a very convivial time until ‘Bouffant’ Colville, there acting as MC, collared Mark Butcher and harangued him for several minutes about how embarrassed he’d been to be a Surrey supporter during the season, and how he was fed up defending them during stints in front of the camera. It all got quite heated as Butcher stuck up for the team, with the normally urbane Colville displaying severe potty-mouth tendencies.

In the end the two of them had to be separated by Butcher Senior and Mark Ramprakash.

Cannot tell you how much I hope Butcher managed to land a few on the fathead ColVILE....
