It is with regret that we are notifying you of the recent death of one of our valued life members. Sadly Derek Ellwood passed away on 5th August 2014, in hospital aged 82.

Derek was a former player, committee member and in the latter years, a life member of the club.

He has been actively involved in the club over many years and will be sadly missed. He was a genuine, sociable character who always found time to speak to everyone and loved being around the club and watching almost every game played on the ground, occasionally he was known to have a brandy, or two! Our thoughts and wishes go to his wife Barbara and his children and grandchildren.

The funeral will take place at Charnock Richard Crematorium on Monday 18th August at 3pm, then Standish Cricket Club afterwards.

Barbara has asked for family flowers only and any donations to Standish Cricket Club.
