FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK EVERY SPORTS club needs an Alan Jamieson. The 69-year-old has dedicated a lifetime to St Albans cricket but after five decades of administration work he’s decided to call it quits. On page 13, we talk with Jamie about his time at the club and why he’s decided to close his innings. He joined the club from Papanui High in January 1965 and played 521 games, took 1260 wickets and scored 7008 runs until March 2006. That’s not a bad scoreboard in anyone’s reckoning. And Jamie says he won’t be seen much around te club now either and he’ll be likely watching matches from a discreet distance. “I want to give them a chance to take the reins without me hovering around,” he says of the new administrators. - Barry Clarke
