    Deid. Yorkshire and England Proper Manniesí Cricket Legend

    Ray Illingworth, 11 short of a deserved final tonne. Ironically on the Lordís day, if you have traction in that sort of tomfoolery. The final downer on a day when I was thrashed at Hungry Hippos by a four year-old.

    BBC obituary (**** off, Sky).

    I once slept in his bed, so to speak. On a corporate jolly to Leeds we were accommodated in a hotel within Headingly, overlooking the pitch. My room was the Illingworth Room. It was a bog standard hotel room, but it had a cracking view.
