Welcome to the news section, where you’ll find the latest posts about what’s going on in and around the club.
It is with deep regret that Liverpool Ramblers AFC must announce the death of His Honour John Arthur DFC. John died peacefully on the afternoon of 17th January 2013 aged 90, with his children at his bedside.
His association with the Club was not limited to the provision of sons Johnny and David to play for the Ist Xl over many years. There will be many members who recall the warmth of John’s personality and the generosity of his support.
The Funeral will be at St Bridget’s Church, Church Road, West Kirby at 11.00am on Friday the 24th January.
We are delighted to announce that John Pickup, Liverpool Rambler and an ECB Board Director since 1997, will become a Member of the British Empire (MBE) for his work with the recreational game. He is also a member of the ECB’s Major Match Group and Chairman of the Minor Counties Cricket Association.
ECB Chief Executive David Collier said “John has given a lifetime’s service to cricket and this award is fitting recognition for the hugely important role he has played in the wider development of the sport both with ECB and its predecessor, the Test and County Cricket Board. He has been a great champion, in particular, of our recreational game and his knowledge and expertise in this area remain invaluable.”
