Colin first became a member of the Club in 1957 and then a Life Member in 1997. His support over the last fifty seven years has been greatly appreciated and I am sure that he will be sadly missed, at North Marine Road, by all those that knew him.
He was first elected to the Committee in 1977 and gave faithful service for twenty one years until 1998. During this period, at various times, he served on the House, Cricket, Fund Raising, Cricket Policy & Ground, Festival, Finance & General Purposes, Bars, Sponsors, Social and Management Committees and from 1994 was the Club Vice-Chairman.
Colin played first eleven cricket from 1969 to 1975 playing 53 innings with an average of 13.1. He also then played second eleven cricket in the East Yorkshire Cup for 14 years and captained the second eleven for five seasons. He also managed the teams in their early successes in the Haigh Trophy competition at Lords in the early seventies.
In later years Colin was joined in his love of cricket by his late son Richard who took a keen interest helping out on the ground and Colin would accompany him down to the ground.
Colin will be sadly missed by his many friends in both the cricket and rugby world here in Scarborough.
We would like pass on our condolences to Kate, his wife and to Nicola his daughter and the rest of the family and be assured you will be in our thoughts at this sad time.
