Hyde Name Origins.

The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .

Hyde Cricket Club

I came across these photographs recently which I took of a match up at Werneth Low sometime in the late 1980s. Does anyone recognise any of the players involved?

Picture 4 Tony Ghilkes at fine leg;
Picture 5 Lee Brown at slip
Picture 6 Tony again at short leg, think the silly mid-on might be Peter Bolger, Wicketkeeper was also called Tony but can't remember surname at present.
