Sunday 23 March 1986

Ooh… brrr… today was a cold and windy day.  Spring in the air?  Not bl***y likely.  I collected £105 on my paper round – something to keep the cold at bay I suppose.

In the Full Members Cup Final at Wembley, Chelsea beat Manchester City by 5-4.  Whilst in the 3rd Test Match between West Indies and England at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, England were floundering at 136-6 following on after making only 189 in response to West Indies first innings total of 418.  They were eventually all out for just 199 thereby losing the match by an innings and 30 runs.  West Indies won the series 5-0 their second successive blackwash.
