22nd July 2000 – the Badgers leave the field after beating Ewhurst by 71 runs (see the match report and scorecard for more details). This was Darrell’s first match for the Badgers, and he certainly looks as if he enjoyed himself. He may be the youngest player ever to turn out for the Badgers, at ten years and six days old, but no one is sure exactly when Mark Gordon played his first ever game, so the ‘record’ remains uncertain. He is definitely the first third generation Badger, not just because of the Butt connection detailed in the other picture in this pair, but also because his grandfather, Laurence Pitts, was one of the founder members of the club and played for the first 19 seasons.
From L to R:  Darrell Pitts, Steve Pitts, Alan Tickner, Richard Kemp, Chris Byrne, Mick Willmott, Ewhurst’s umpire, Roy Gordon (in umpire’s coat) and Mark Gordon
