Bucks County Cricket Club are sad to report the death of their former President Jack Tomlin at the age of 88 after a short illness.
Jack, who played his club cricket for High Wycombe, was a talented right-hand batsman and brilliant fielder, represented Bucks in 15 Minor Counties Championship matches between 1960-62. He became Bucks CCC Secretary, succeeding the legendary Paul Slatter, in 1985. It was a post he held with quiet efficiency until 1998. When Ken Drucquer stepped down as President in 2006, Jack was the outstanding candidate to succeed him. He was President until 2013 when he retired from the Committee, ending 30 years of outstanding service for the County Club. He was one of only three Honorary Life Members of the Club.
This year our main speaker is Patrick “Pat” Murphy the cricket commentator and Radio 5 broadcaster. He has written over 40 books and collaborated with, amongst others Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Allan Donald, Viv Richards and Graham Gooch. He has also written acclaimed biographies of Brian Clough and Ian Botham
Our MC will be Mr Roger Dakin. Roger has done many of our previous Dinner’s and his stories have been enjoyed by all.
We are again at High Wycombe CC the venue has provided us with excellent food and service at other functions and we have no doubt that the food and service will be excellent again.
