A member of Denby Cricket Club who is half way through on a 630 mile walk in support of club funds says he is looking forward to being reunited with a childhood sweetheart at the finishing line. First Team scorer Steve Topley hopes to complete the marathon at Poole Harbour where he will meet Rosalyn - a woman he was ‘good friends’ with at Mossborough Junior School in the 1950s and 60s. Retired bricklayer Steve, 63, set off from Minehead on Tuesday February 26 on the South West Coastal path. He said: “We were like brother and sister - but she moved away when she was about 13.”
