All Baldock Cricket Club's teams paid their respects to Alan Brown at last week's games, following the death of the club's treasurer.

"Alan had been with Baldock for more than 50 years and is a huge loss to the club," said press officer Alistair Jones.

"He played for many years, but it was his unstinting work behind the scenes that will be most remembered by players from both the cricket and bowls clubs past and present.

"He was treasurer of both clubs, providing excellent support to the committees he sat on for many years.

"He was also responsible for the superb cricket teas that won such high praise each season, and most of all he was an ever present, loyal, and proud supporter of his beloved club.

"A friend to all. Alan will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. The three teams that Baldock fielded at the weekend all wore black armbands, and on Saturday a minute's silence was observed out of respect."
