I am sorry to read of the death of Reg Simpson, he was a fine opening batsman. I spent many hours watching him at Trent Bridge in the 1950's & 1960's.

RIP.

I got his autograph in 1962, will it be worth anything now he's passed away?!! Anyway, RIP

I came across RT Simpson on the way home from school in Gunn and Moore when I went in as usual to ogle the bats which of course I could never be able to afford. He was in the shop and I remember not to proud to chat to a scruffy little urchin. RIP Reg.

I remember seeing 'Reg' Simpson on a cigarette card. He was always portraid as being very well groomed. A name from the past which will always be with us. RIP

Only saw him a playing a couple of times in the 50's but remember that he was one of the stalwarts of that slightly "frail" Notts team of the 50's and followed his games in the score sheets at the back of the Evening Post.

He was a director of Gunn and Moore after his playing days had finished.

R I P Reg.

I believe Reg Simpson was somehow related to my father, Bert Sisson from Langley Mill. He was also know for having bowled 'under-arm' in a TestMatch.

I was a Juvenile member and later a Junior member of Notts CCC in the 50's and early 60's, and remember Reg Simpson opening the batting with Johnny Clay. Notts were not among the top teams in those days, although they had some good players.

LizzieM, I don't think his autograph will be valuable, he would often sit in his car after the match and collectors would form an orderly queue to get his signature, he would sign everyones book before driving home. R.I.P Reg Simpson, wartime RAF pilot.
