Anton Luiten's 100th game for Cornwall O50s/60s 

Anton's poem:

If a test match is not your quest and the Hundred is too frantic

Then look out to the far south west where the Channel meets the Atlantic

Here lives a band of warriors between the moorland and the sand

Worked by miners and quarriers and farmers on fertile land

Today we give up plough and axe and take up a sword of willow

Whose blade will smite bowlers attacks have them crying on their pillow

Take to the field of battle, then remember to proudly walk tall

Blaze a trail you Trelawney men, for Cornwall, one and all
