Quite prepared to come in for a bit of bagging, but...

...back in 2010, I took my daughter (then 17) to the Boxing Day Test Match in Melbourne, and while walking to the ground, we met a young English lad (probably 19 at the time) who was heading to the ground as well. My daughter got talking to him, and she was instantly smitten. Just wondering if anyone in the Barmy Army knows who this mystery lad is, and whether he's out here for the current series?

All we have to go on is that his name was Fred, and he was finishing a Bachelor of Philosophy. From memory, I think he might have said that his Dad lived in Adelaide?

Anyway, cue the abuse / jokes / etc.

Good heavens, not going to bag you at all mate but that has to be just about the strangest request I've ever seen on any message board!!

When I was a young tyke why didn't the girls I was trying to hook up with have a father like you?? I considered myself fortunate if they let me in the house!!

Sorry though can't help you with the identity of Fred, but you never know your luck......you've certainly come to the right place to try and find him.

Best of luck with it and I for one reckon you're a bloody champ :D

I think you're on the wrong forum, old cock.
Most of the people on here are pot-bellied Northerners with a degree in chips from the University of Lager - I can't imagine for a moment your daughter would be interested in them.
Good luck anyway for going above and beyond the call of duty.

Bit rich coming from 'Billy not even a prospect of mates'.

Good luck with the hunt matey. Contrary to what some would say there are a lot of decent English lads out in Aus right now, tell her to move on and pick another. She's safe anyway cos Cuthbert aint a traveller.
