“In February 1968, I went to the cricket Test match between the West Indies and England at my beloved Sabina Park, Jamaica. It was the fourth day of play and I was in the South Camp Road bleachers stand when bottles started to rain down upon the field of play. The police then fired tear gas under the stand and my eyes started to stream. I jumped over the barbed wire fence to safety but during my escape I received a cut to my stomach. To this day, I still have the four-inch scar. This injury became a badge of honour for me because whenever I was playing cricket in Luton, or when there was any discussion about Test matches at Sabina Park, I would pull up my shirt to show the mark!”
