Club stalwart George Sabin Died this morning.

Club stalwart George Sabin Died at 8am on Monday morning.

His Funeral will be on Friday – 12 noon at Shutford Church then back to the Cricket Club.

Anybody who met George would agree that he was a fantastic man.

Though most recently George was known for his work on the ground at White Post Road, those who were lucky enough to play with George will remember an accurate and skilful medium pacer capable of genuine swing. He went on to become President of the club and eventually groundsman. He took enormous pride in his work and was excellent at his job. He took a new ground and turned it into a Minor Counties venue in a year, the ground always a picture. Having been fortunate enough to work with George I can say he had genuine love for the ground and the club and he spent many a happy hour neutering it into the ground it is today.

A man with great enthusiasm for and knowledge of the game of cricket, George, when asked, would always offer very sensible advice on the game.

He battled manfully against Cancer for over a year continuing to work for the club through his illness, working as recently as March this year.

He will be sorely missed by all at the club. Our thoughts and prayers are with Maureen, his wife, at this difficult time. They are also with Andrew and the rest of his family.
