Life Members

The following people have given large amounts of their time and effort over the years to Hurley Cricket Club and have been awarded Life Membership:

Colin Ainger - Long serving player and President. Life long Chelsea FC fan and a leading light in Berks Seniors Cricket. Scored over 5000 runs and held over 100 catches.

Dave Atkins - Dour opening bat, gobbled gully catches as if pork pies, third highest run machine in the club with over 11,000 runs. Drove a ball long before he could drive a car.

David Burfitt - Dave’s family own the land and through his generous patronage it is rented for a ‘peppercorn’ rent of £1

Andy Chapman - Leading light in rebuilding the clubhouse in 1977. Liked the horses and a pint of ale.

Kevin Clement - Kevin set many records for the club and was it’s first and most enthusiastic statistician and archivist delving into the history of the club among the pages of the Maidenhead Advertiser. The only example of a Brentford supporter.

John Cobby - Club Secretary, Ground Secretary, Bar Steward and all round good egg. Rustic beard.

Jeff Dawson - Long serving groundsman and bar steward, hockey player turned batsman, sprightly fielder.

J. Donovan - Treasurer and founding father of the reborn Hurley

Roger Feast - Stylish bat, bon viveur, dodgy beard, helped rebuild the club in 1977

Gordon Ford - For many years leading wicket taker for the club and retired on 665 after 25 years playing. Now sadly lost to golf, grandchildren and caravan. One of the nicest people you could meet unless you were an opposing batsman. Arm as crooked as Del Boy.

Gill Ford - Wife of Gordon, enough tea poured to fill Lords

Val Forrest - Unquestionably the finest teas in Berkshire and can be found digging the mound like a mole. Mother of Dave which in itself deserves an award.

Sid Forrest - Wicketkeeping genius (709 dismissals), England University keeper, skipper of the Championship winning team of '95 and father of Dave

Fred Furneaux - Peter Pan of Hurley, maybe nicer than Gordon, still playing football into his 60’s (and getting sent off), 373 appearances and still counting. Carried the colts for too long on his own.

Brian Griffin - Genial Head Master, Chairman, and top order bat with dodgy hamstrings and an unusual recipe for a tour drink

Grace Keeble - Long suffering wife of Dick Keeble (deceased) our former groundsman

G. Kosinski - Early stalwart of the embryonic HCC and benefactor

D. Lewis - Treasurer 1967-72

Alan Mustoo - Club Secretary and patron of the bar. Mythical figure

Mrs Pinder - Club benefactor

Mike Ridgeway - Long serving and suffering scorer, Treasurer and curmudgeon. 'Humbug'

Martin Tetlow - Ground Secretary, patron of the bar, cunning spin bowler who once took 8-38

Rita Walton - Ever cold and long suffering scorer, immortalised by the phrase ‘how was that out Hun?’Hair the colour of a Duke ball but with more shine
