IBM Havant Cricket Club

Can you help?

Many of the IBM sports clubs of the 1970s and 1980s no longer exist, but one that has bucked the trend is the IBM South Hants Cricket Club. This started out life as the IBM Havant Cricket Club from 1970-1976 and was renamed in 1977 when the IBM team joined the Hampshire Cricket League. IBM Havant wasn't the only team to play in the pre-1977 era as there are also a few records of IBM Portsmouth and possibly others playing matches in the '70s. Trevor Lee, one of the longest serving members of the club, has been pursuing the club history for many years now and would be interested to hear of anyone who used to be involved with any of the IBM Cricket Clubs, especially from the 1970s and 1980s. The kind of information that he is on the lookout for includes

Old scorebooks (1970-1981)
Match details
Photographs
Anecdotes
Club committee material
General historical information

...all of this information is to be used to fill in the gaps in the club(s) history.

As stated earlier the club is still very active as can be seen from its website - http://www.ibmshcc.org.uk/, and there is the intention of adding historical information to that site some time in the next 12 months as time permits.

If you have any information or material that could be loaned for copying, Trevor can be contacted by his home phone number 01489 896547 after 8:00PM, and arrangements can be made to meet up. Even if you have nothing of interest, but used to play for any of the teams, please contact Trevor, as a possible reunion of ex-players is at the early stages of planning for (2013).

IBM Hursley Museum

The museum at IBM Hursley Park exists to help preserve IBM's historical heritage. The museum contains artefacts from the Hursley Park location as well as hardware from the company's beginnings through to many of the products developed at Hursley over the years. Staff on-site can visit the museum at any time. Customer groups are often shown around the Museum during visits to the Executive Briefing Centre but due to its location in the IBM development laboratory the Museum is not open to the general public. However visits by organised groups can be, and are, arranged. Recent visitors have included two branches of the University of the Third Age (U3A) and Hampshire Buildings Preservation Trust. Applications for such visits should be made to hurseve@uk.ibm.com.

They are looking in particular for hardware and CE tools. On the hardware front, they are very keen to get a PC-AT and an 8775, but are happy to consider any hardware that might be lurking in attics! They have a small selection of CE tools, but need screwdrivers, pliers, Bristow keys, spring hooks, circlip tool and any special tools, also test equipment of any kind.

Any CE spare parts are also welcome, as well as old PC software. They do reserve the right to offer a polite No Thanks where they may already have a reasonable quantity, for example they do not need any more PC Portables (aka Luggable). If you have any items of interest or would like more information about the museum, then please visit the website www.slx-online.biz/hursley.
