1966 – Lord’s Taverners Match Helps Pay for New Extension

To help pay for a new pavilion extension (cost c. £5,600) – a brick-built addition to include better changing facilities and a larger kitchen – the Club played the Lord’s Taverners on June 12. 1966 (Harry Secombe 58′ including 10 boundaries!).

The Club cooks induced the comment from restaurant critic, Taverner Clement Freud: “My children say they will eat nowhere else.” The Taverners came back for more in 1968.
