(Circulated and Posted On Mon 14 October, 2019)
Sadly, our former Assistant Secretary and League Officer, Ian Denton has passed away. His funeral was on Friday.

Sympathies are expressed to Ian's wife Valerie who was also very much involved in the running of the League and issuing the Information Newsletters.

The news was conveyed by Aidan Love, a former Cooksons CC team mate.

>> Ian had been diagnosed a few years ago and things had been up and down. He took early retirement just over a year ago but unfortunately spent most of his time with treatment and stays in hospital. Despite his many problems he always remained positive, even at the end he just wanted to go home to be with Valerie and the dogs for his remaining days.

Ian's funeral was last Friday, there was a good turn out and there were plenty of cricket stories retold. Appropriately the final tune at the crematorium was the theme to "Test Match Special"

RIP Ian Denton.
