Generous bequest

Newcastle Cricket Club has been humbled to discover how much the club meant to our much-missed committee member Ray Eden. We have just learned that he has generously left a bequest for the club.

The details will be known later in the year, when his affairs are settled. In the meantime, we suggest we raise a glass to him when in the Br, and also at our AGM on 19 February – 7.30 start, everyone welcome from 7pm.

We had already been considering an appropriate way to remember Ray’s lifetime of links to the ground – he joined at the age of 14 – and your ideas will be welcome. Please email secretary@newcastlecc.co.uk or write to the committee at the club address.
