On Tuesday we were shocked to hear that Westley Campbell had passed away at just 37. Wes had been a member of the club since his school days and renowned as an enthusiastic, talented and colourful character – a naturally gifted player of football, cricket and golf. Although not having played much cricket in recent years he is fondly remembered by all of his contemporaries as a fun-loving, humorous young man who had a kind and gentle side which was especially valued by the younger players coming into the senior sides.

All senior teams carried out a minute silence before their games, and over 50 people came to the pavilion Saturday night to raise a glass to Wes.

Wes’s funeral will take place on Thursday 24th May at 12.20pm at Worthing Crematorium, and the wake is at Littlehampton golf club.

The under 10’s carried on from last week to make it two wins from two. Scorecard here.

Unfortunately all adult games were abandoned on Saturday. The first team were 226-6 after 39 overs when the rain was deemed too heavy to continue by the umpires. The second team were 23-3 after 7 overs when abandoned and the third team did not bowl or face a ball at Fernhurst.

On Sunday, the under 12’s lost at Goodwood. Scorecard here.
