Tony Botting

FCC are very sad to report that one of the club’s great characters, Tony Botting passed away this morning.

 Father of FCC stalwarts, Nigel and Gary and husband of Margaret, Tony umpired at the club for approximately 5 years after playing for local teams Broadwater, Pathfinder and Ham Sports in the evening league. A fierce competitor on and off the field and a formidable presence as an umpire, Tony had a great sense of humour and was an avid supporter of the club in his later years. He will be sorely missed.

 Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time. Details of the funeral will be provided in due course.

Dennis Williams

It is with great sadness that we announce former Club captain Dennis Williams has passed away.

Geoff , Dennis’ son phoned last night to say that Dennis had passed away end of May at 98 years old. Dennis was captain in the 60’s and was a great supporter of the club. He is survived by his wife of 74 years Eileen. He has three sons Alan, Geoff and David , David now lives in Australia. Alan the eldest used to keep for the club. Eileen would like to scatter Denis ashes at the club sometime this year. Dennis lived in Eastbourne in the latter part of his life and Called Bradley a few years ago to see the start time of the league match against Eastbourne so he could attend and support where he chatted at length with a number of our players, young and old. A true servant to Findon Cricket Club.

Our thoughts are with Dennis’ family at this sad time.

Rest in peace Dennis.
