Go west: Bateson on the move

Bill Bateson, the former News of the World sports editor and long-time SJA member, supporter and committee member, has moved down to Cornwall.

Bill writes: “We have not retired from society. Honest! I am still using my Arsenal season ticket (no bad jokes, please about Sunday) and will be up there for the big Euro game on Wednesday.

“And I shall also hope to be at the awards dinner on March 17 – with Tom Clarke and a couple of others we are arranging a
Wooldridge table to salute his new award.

“I shall make time between learning to fish, driving a boat (hopefully soon) and trying to find the golf swing that disappeared a couple of years or so back. We are, in fact, living right next to the golf course, so it ought to be possible.”

New address: Ebb Tide, Budock Vean Lane, Mawnan Smith, Falmouth, Cornwall, TR11 5LG
