Recent Addition – Memorabilia from the 1967 Gillette Cup Final v Kent

We are very grateful to Mr. Ian Keitch, who brought these items of memorabilia into the Museum today. The items belonged to his father, Geoff Keitch, a Somerset CCC member, who had recently died. Thank you Ian for the booklet, programme, ticket and scorecard.

They will certainly complement the article on the website, The Forgotten Final, by Richard Walsh.
