    109, Wardour Street, London.

    SCU Robins seated at desk talking into microphone 'I am convinced that the standard of cricket is improving in the cricketing world. Today, with the exception of that in this country. I think that we've got to go into a much wider field if we are to regain our former best match glory, and that field I feel is the 'boy in the street' who, in my opinion has not had the chance in cricket that he should have had. CU At present the interest and the desire to play is undoubtedly there and if we can only give these boys the opportunities for playing, basic coaching, decent equipment, I think we shall definitely improve our standard of cricket and it will not be many years before the advantages are felt throughout club, county and test match cricket. (CU repeated 5 times).

    Just to confirm that "R W V Robins" is the man's name, so title can be altered.
