Ever since 1981 when I first played weekend cricket in Chiswick House, Miss Naysmith would invariably turn up early into the game and sit with her back to the large tree which was on the boundary edge near the pavilion. From there she would produce some paper and proceed to "score" the match as well as praising and criticising as she felt fit, staying for hours and refusing always, offers of tea and sandwiches. In the 70's and 80's before communication became so easy teams would send out postcards to those selected to play the following Saturday/Sunday. At the start of every season, Miss Naysmith would write a letter to the clubs (Old Meadonians and Turnham Green) and enclose enough stamps for a week or two postage. Her way of helping us out. How she never suffered serious injury from a cricket ball I will never know but I believe she escaped despite being struck a few times over the years. She spent many hours every weekend for many many summers and I for one would love to see a memorial of some kind in Chiswick House where she sat so often.
