HEREFORDSHIRE COUNTY CRICKET CLUB
PETER SYKES 1936-2014
It is with much sadness and deep regret that Herefordshire County Cricket Club has to announce the sudden death of the Club Secretary, Peter Sykes’
Club Chairman Bobbie Hadley said, “Pete was a stalwart of the cricket world both at home in Herefordshire and also nationally through his prestigious position in the Minor Counties Cricket Association. He had an extensive knowledge of cricket and amazing administration skills that will be hard to replace.
He was a ‘chuckle’ of a man who always made you smile. He was kind and caring – a man with a heart of gold who will sadly be missed very much by all who knew him.”
The funeral will be on Thursday 11 September at the Hereford Crematorium, Westfalling Street, Hereford at 3 pm, followed by a cricket tea at the Railway Club, Barton Road, Hereford (near Sainsbury’s)
