SIR - Very sorry to hear about the death of [one of the All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League’s best-known umpires] Derek Shuttleworth. I was a pupil at Hanson Grammar School in the 1950s and have fond memories of being taught by Mr Shuttleworth. He was my favourite teacher and a very very nice man.

He was one of the very few teachers who always called boys by their first name. He will be sorely missed.
