At that time Brand Hall had some of Worcestershire's leading
amateurs, people like Harley Roberts, E. W. Rigby, J. T. Mitchley, and
G. H. Litherland. I played with these members many times in various
events and won three successive Alliance titles with Jack Mitchley,
but he and Geoff Litherland remain in my memory more for three
motoring experiences, the first of which was to occur the following
year during my first Open Championship.
