Sadly John is no longer with us, have passed away recently. He was an absolute legend in the club and was a member for 50 years or more. At various time he has held many of the cricket club positions, honours and awards, his most memorable being taking "6 wickets in 1 over" at indoor cricket - an achievment that can only be equaled never beaten, which of course he continually kept reminding us of.
Apart from his playing ability he was a relentless worker behind the scenes, doing all jobs required by any cricket club, cutting grass, preparing the wicket etc. He was also the arranger of many, memorable, cricket club tours, both in this country and abroad.
When he retired from playing he attended every match to offer his help and advice to all the players (usually sitting in a deck chair with a pint of beer in his hand.
He was a very popular member of the club and will be very much missed.
