Welcome to Wollaston Cricket Club's website. Wollaston Cricket Club is CLUBMARK accredited and competes on Saturdays in the Northamptonshire Cricket League. Our thriving Youth Section supports teams at Under Nine, Under Eleven, Under Thirteen and Under Fifteen.
Following the sad loss of Dick last week, his funeral will be held at Kettering Crematorium on Monday November 24th at 1.30pm, and afterwards at The Hill, Wollaston.
Dick (Club number 69) joined Wollaston Cricket Club in the early Seventies and has been the ultimate Clubman ever since. He opened the batting for many years in his own inimitable style whilst at the same time purveying his left arm slow medium bowling which brought him 258 wickets and into "all-rounder" category. He captained the Second Eleven in 1981, 82 and 83 and was vice-captain on several occasions.
As well as playing he has been a hard working Committee member for over 40 years and when his playing days were over he took up the smock and was the regular Second Eleven umpire until eventually he decided to watch the game from the other side of the boundary and enjoy a slightly more relaxing Saturday afternoon.
Right up to the end of this season Dick was an invaluable member of the ground staff as well as serving behind the bar every Friday night during the summer and undertaking numerous other tasks for the benefit of other members. The work he did for the Club is immeasurable and the great loss of Dick will be felt by everyone concerned with Wollaston Cricket Club.
