We arrived at the shed around 12:30 – it wasn’t the old Elder Hunter Boathouse anymore, but the new and vastly improved Graham Fowles. It had been a sunny morning, but the clouds had come over and the wind had whipped up the water. The shed was open and inside were a few of the lads I hadn’t seen in 30 years – Mudgey, Jon, and Tim were there, then I saw a fit gentleman I didn’t recognise at first – George Petelin, the coach.

The key criteria for selection were players who achieved success whilst playing a dedicated and decorated career in the Downs. Notably, there was…

After four and half years of writing and editing, all spent in the creation of an epic contemporary fantasy novel aimed at young adults and up, Old Boy Joey Rawlings (2001) finally published his first novel The Frailty of Perception in August 2014. Joey started writing the novel at the age of 21 in whatever time he could spare between full-time university study and full-time work in the hospitality sector. The lure of travel soon overtook his creative desires and although he did graduate from university, he never completed the novel. After three years spent travelling the world, he returned home, started a publishing company and finally completed his personal project, The Frailty of Perception; book one of The Asher…
