Who says this site doesn’t serve a valuable purpose?

Just a quick update to draw your attention to an old post which a lot of you won’t have seen because it’s from 2009. It’s about Jim Foat.

If you don’t know Jim Foat, it’s hopefully worth a read, but that’s not the main reason why we’re reviving it today. We just wanted to highlight the comments section where a number of people who know Jim have written something in the years since the piece was first published.

There’s nothing of earth-shattering importance in there. It’s just interesting to see how this website has become a repository for vague positive feelings about an underachieving 1970s county cricketer.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Thanks KC, and thanks Jim Foat and his friends.

  2. Bagsy Baker’s posting on that Jim Foat piece, from the early hours of this morning, is worth the price of admission alone.

    I especially love the “good golfer if only he could putt” punchline – a masterpiece of KC website comment making.

    I even forgive the apostrophe catastrophes because the content is so delicious.

  3. Haha, what fun. All it needs now is a message from the man himself.

    Do you get alerts to new posts on old topics, or just check them now and then?

    1. We see a feed of recent comments when we log into WordPress. We read them all.

  4. A google search for Jim Foat ranks KC’s site above Wikipedia. KC, you have arrived!

    Oh, wait, NO! duckduckgo does not think so.
