Change to funeral start time
Rex's funeral will be held at Wollaston Baptist Church on Wednesday July 1st at 11.45am and afterwards at Wollaston Working Men's Club.
It is with great sadness we have to report that Rex passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning, June 13th.
Making his debut in senior cricket aged fourteen, and going on to skipper the First team in 1981, 82, 84 & 88, May 2015 brought up Rex's fiftieth season with Wollaston. In that time he scored around 15,000 league runs including 6,103 for the First Eleven with a highest score of 102 against Rushton in 1987.
Rex also holds the record for the most First Eleven wicketkeeper dismissals (286) and the most in a season (35 in 1986)
He scored over 7,000 Second Eleven runs with a season's best of 641 in 2002 and went on to add to his total with nearly 2,000 for the Third Team - along with many more for the County Over 50's and 60's.
Rex will be greatly missed, not just in Wollaston but across a wide local area where he also excelled at football, bowls and skittles.
Our thoughts are with him and his lovely family.
