I believe only two, that the public was aware of.
May Andy RIP
David is the only West Indies international cricketer, I played with, we got our coaching at the junior level from Foffie Williams at Wesley Hall Primary school.

As a Rasta, he maybe living off the land and the sea.
I must say he has good memory, when he can come up to me in a restaurant, call me by name after 40 years, tells me his memory is still good.

Andy maybe was a better batsman than David, When the Aussie school boys toured the WI Andy was the best bajan bat, he scored an attractive 80 against Lillee.

He played for Foundation, a excellent u16 player, a couple years behind me, maybe he was ahead of the Fuzzy.

RIP Andy.

I knew very little of Andy, was not surprise when David played for Barbados and the West Indies.
Guys like Richard Stoute and others that know David, will tell you he earned his selection.

Nice interview, As I said before, Andy was a good batsman, maybe presure of being Weekes' son got to him. Peter and John were good swimmers as well as footballers.

What happened to David son? he was also a promising wicketkeeper batsman.
David did not had the pressure of being Sir Everton son, it was not something he talked about.
I cannot remember him acknowledging, he was Sir Everton son.
Was David a product of Richmond?

I met David at Wesley Hall Primary school during a coaching session, a number of students from St. Matthews, St.Giles, Montgomery, Bay Primary, Richmonds and a few other schools, attended the coaching clinics on Saturday mornings.

Ricky toured with the A team to SA sometime mid/late 90s

Trying to remember which secondary school he would have attended.

On another note this was my favourite Sandpebbles song.
