West Bridgford Legion Cricket Club were sad to learn of the death of their president Sam Harris.
Sam was born and bred in the Lady Bay area and joined the fledgling club in 1948.
He was soon the regular opening batsman for the first XI and by the early 1950s had become secretary, a position he was to hold for more than 30 years.
Sam established a record score of 137 not out in the late 1950s, which was only surpassed in the new millennium.
On his retirement as secretary, he firstly became chairman and then president, always attending the meetings and retaining a keen interest in the club.
Our thoughts are with Sam’s widow Margaret, who usually accompanied Sam to games, scoring on most occasions.
A popular couple on the cricket scene and very well known in the Lady Bay area.
