Sad news to report - see note from our president below.

I regret to inform you of the passing of Les Hague, former President of Whaley Bridge CC, at the age of 95. Les was one of the premier batsmen in the League during the 1950s and 60's. He was capable of making big scores on the old uncovered green-top wickets we had in those days, even against the best quickies, thanks to his excellent and correct technique. He was an opening bat, and I believe represented the League XI on several occasions. Ever a gentleman, Les had a great sense of sportsmanship and fair play. He had been suffering from prostate cancer for a couple of years. Only the older members of the League will remember Les or have played against him, as he retired around 1967.
Best regards
David Cadwallader
