Club official Mark Goodale said: “The club is in shock. Geoff was Newborough Cricket Club through and through. He first played as a 14 year-old and was a distinguished club treasurer and chairman as well as groundsman.

“Geoff even helped build our original clubhouse. He’s a huge loss to the club.

“He was a cricket lover and a supporter of all the local competitions. He never missed Burghley Park CC week, the Jaidka Cup Final and the Stanmford Cup finals.”
