I'm going in cruise in November which is cricket themed and on said cruise are Graham Gooch and Roland Butcher with Nick Hancock doing a quiz thing.

Apparently, Roland Butcher, who was the first black cricketer to play for England, went to a Shephalbury School and played for Stevenage cricket club.

But I've also heard he made appearance for Stevenage football club (not sure what one). Anyone remember or know if true?

Butcher is a Stevenage CC legend. My old man skippered his debut in their 2nd team when he was about 14. I think the story goes that he was told he was a decent bowler. Roland was too shy to correct this and didn’t get a bat in a defeat. The week later the message got through and he scored a century!

No idea re playing footy
