RICHARD "HOSS" CARTWRIGHT PASSES AWAY

It's with great sadness that we inform you that Richard passed away on Monday 14th August whilst on holiday in North Devon.  Richard joined the club in 1995, towards the end of his playing days, after previously playing at several clubs, most notably Arnold CC.  A right arm bowler, Hoss had a fiercely competitive spirit, and was renowned for shouting "You Lucky Man" at any batsman that had benefitted from a dropped catch off his bowling.  In 187 games for the club, he racked up 224 wickets at 20.42 each, with a best of 6 for 10 off 12 overs at Collingham.  A regular on tour, Hoss holds the record for the longest spell of bowling on tour when Joey Thorpe made him struggle through 20 Overs unchanged at Ivybridge in Devon whilst holding in the drink from the night before!!  Hoss had a sincere love for the club and regularly volunteered to umpire, and more latterly gave up his time to help at the ground, including recently helping to paint the outside of the pavilion.

Richard will be sadly missed, and our thoughts are with his wife Maria at this deeply upsetting time.Newquay_2007_030
