Club loses second stalwart


A SECOND long-serving member of Glazebury Cricket Club has died.
Former club captain Don Morris, 78, died only two weeks after groundsman and former player Tom Milmine.
Don was a founder member of the Hurst Lane club when it re-formed at the end of World War 2.
A technically correct opening batsman, he played for the club until about 10 years ago.
He accumulated literally thousands of runs over the years and was also a useful spin bowler and a fine close-1n fielder.
He worked for British Rail for many years and also turned out for railway teams across the North West.
Former club president Alan Graham said: “Don was a fine cricketer who could have played at a much higher level of the game. But he preferred to stay
with his friends at Glazebury.”
The funeral service took place at All Saints Church, Glazebury on Friday – just across the road from the Hurst Lane ground.
