IN MEMORIAM OF RICHARD HAWKINS A TRUE CLUBMAN

It is with great sadness and shock that we have to announce the sudden and unexpected death of Richard Hawkins, who was a life honorary member of the club.  All our thoughts are with Angie and his family at this distressing time.

Richard had been a member of our club for many years, and was a very good cricketer.  Only last season he captained the 2nd XI and had done for a number of years.  He was well respected on the cricket “circuit” throughout Devon.  Those of us who were fortunate enough to play with him will fondly remember his commitment and sportsmanship.

Richard’s family was immensely important to him, and they accompanied him at all matches, acting as tea ladies, bar staff, scorers and substitutes if we were short.  This was a huge factor in creating a true family atmosphere at the club.

Richard was also the lead in carrying out the many and extensive building improvements to the club over the past five years.  He gave freely of his time and expertise, sometimes at unearthly hours, using his excellent skills as a carpenter to ensure everything was done properly and professionally.  The work he did is there for all to see and has received nothing but plaudits from all who use the facilities.

Richard will be very sadly missed by all of us at the club, but we are determined that his loyalty and commitment will be remembered and recognised.

Stats

Complete statistics and player averages have now been posted for the 2013 season and can be viewed HERE. There are pages for full club player lists, and also for top divisional performances.

Congratulations to Shane Evenden and Mark Mortiboys, who not only achieved their divisions highest averages (for 1st XI and 2nd XI respectively) but both set new league records in the process!

Congratulations also to the 1st XI team players who after an administrative delay I now believe are confirmed to have achieved promotion in second place in F-div. Good luck to them in E-div next year!
