Dukes, In the late 70s I captained Finance at Inter-Ministry level. Our Deputy AG, Winston Churchill Nicholls, always came to the games along with AG Sills and co. Nichols often spoke of the Jackman boys, said that they were his grandsons. I never knew if he meant it affectionately, but I got the feeling they really were. I remember one game we played Education at GDF ground and Education made 160 odd. Of course, Nichols and co gave us hell and left at half time. But we won that game and I never let him live it down. He passed last year?? I attended the viewing and lots of folks from Finance were there. He was a good sport, knew how to have a good time.

Here is what a former Guyana middle order batsman wrote about "the Terminator" on hearing of his passing

Oh no!! This is really sad to hear.Sattaur was one of my competition to get into the Guyana team.I remember batting in a trial match with him and he was encouraging me to bat and score runs.He always said a few supportive words too when he was on the opposing side.He was a quiet guy, off the field but brave, dynamic and confident with a bat.RIP champion and may your many cricket memories live on forever.

This was truly how "Satts" was!
