Sydney terror owns up to 1971 incident
SYDNEY, Dec 30 (AFP) - The Australian cricket fan who sparked off crowd trouble which led to England walking off the February 1971 Ashes Test at Sydney has finally owned up.
Trevor Guy, 80, answered an ABC radio appeal for the man who leant across the boundary fence and grabbed England fast bowler John Snow by the shirt in the incident which led to play being suspended.
Guy, who had never been identified, told the Sydney Morning Herald on Wednesday he was angry with Snow for felling Australian tail-ender Terry Jenner with a bouncer and grabbed Snow by the shirt to make sure he heard what he had to say.
Snow, in Australia to watch the current Ashes Test series, said he had no hard feelings.
"Sure I'd shake his hand if I met up with him," Snow said. "That was a long time ago."
