Prompted by the ben born in 1977 thread elsewhere...

A mate came across this picture

Q: I'm the lardy one scribbling on the back of a book. How old am I at the time?

I'll go for 17... And is that Glenn Medeiros sitting next to you?

Oh, and I promise I'll be posting your watch tomorrow! If I don't, you can call me names.

I was going to say "sweet sixteen".

But.. I think you are couple of years older than me.. and the hairstyles look post '78. I would guess about '79-'81. Which makes you about.. Hmm... 18 or 19.

What were you, spin bowler?

'keeper-batsman... though also bowled seam up. Or as one "mate" put it... it seams like bowling...

keep them guesses going... (though I wouldn't base anything on my "hairstyle" !)

were you in school at the time? I would have said 17 but since 16 and 17 appear to be wrong I think I'll revise my guess down and go for a tentative 15?

** EDIT ** Damn someone has taken 15... I say 18?? :?

20. For no reason other than no one else has gone for it.

Narrow collared shirt,along with tears for fears haircut,so circa 1982.
Age 14 years and 9 months 5days.
At first I thought it was the cast of Grange Hill.

circa 1982 and similar wasn't too far wrong... In fact it was summer 1984.

My wife - for the record - -plumped for 15 years old.

rather shockingly (and i find this shocking too!) this photo was taken on the occasion of Aberystwyth University 2nd XI v Lampeter Uni XI... in my final year.

I was 21 at the time!!!

unbelievable innit?!
