Gordon Rose

It is with much sadness that we report the passing of Gordon Rose, past President of Botany Bay Cricket Club, on Tuesday 18th May. Gordon never represented the Bay at sport, joining us from Old Stationers and forging a strong link with his old colleagues. He will be remembered as an umpire over many years, as a loyal and at times very vocal supporter of the Bay and for his dedication to The Bay Jazz Club and his weekly diatribe as their Chairman. His election as Club President for 2005 and 2006 was worthy recognition by members of his contribution to the Club. His humour and support for Arsenal have been much missed during the Covid lockdowns and it is a tragedy that he is no longer able to share time with us as we return to some semblance of normality.
Farewell dear friend.
