EUAN SQUIRES 1933-1996

Members of the club both past and present were shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Euan Squires, who collapsed at the crease whilst batting for the Staff against Gradsoc on the evening of Thursday June 6th 1996. Euan had been a familiar figure in the Staff team for many years and he will be sorely missed. The club extends its deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

Members might like to know that the club collection for Euan reached 83 pounds, and that a cheque for this amount was forwarded to the British Heart Foundation.

Nigel Metcalfe (Secretary, 1996-2011)
