St Augustine Cricket Club

St Augustine Cricket Club’s Kenneth Reid has passed away at the age of 75.

Reid was a long-standing servant of the club, having headed the junior cricket committee and managed the clubhouse for several years.

“Ken had an infectious spirit and he had an enormous impact at St Augustine Cricket Club – a club known for its close bonds between players. His son, Phillip, represented St Augustine Cricket Club,” said club life member and close friend George Damon. “He was a gentle and loving man, who impacted many around him.”

Western Province Cricket Association chief executive officer Nabeal Dien added: “We mourn the passing of Ken, whose long stint at club level in different capacities contributed towards the strengthening of Western Province’s pipeline structures. We want to ensure the Reid family, his friends and club members at St Augustine Cricket Club of our support and prayers during this time of bereavement.”

WPCA president Beresford Williams added: “He was treasurer and manager of the club for more than two decades and was part of the lifeblood of the club. He represented important values and codes that transcended cricket and contributed to the well-being of St Augustine Cricket Club.”

St Augustine CC’s first XI play in the WPCA premier league – and narrowly avoided demotion to the first division A last season. Their first fixture of the 2016-17 campaign will be against Primrose Cricket Club on 15 and 22 October.
