Tuesday May 3rd: It is with great sadness that we learned this morning of the passing of our club president, Eric Lomas.  Eric has been an extremely influential driving force at the club for several decades. He served as club chairman from 1985 until 2001, and has been our president since then. On the Shropshire cricket scene has was well-known, respected and popular. Although not in the best of health during the last couple of years, Eric continued to be involved with the

management of St.Georges Cricket Club. As many of you will already know, Eric’s wife, Millie, also an ardent supporter of the club, with whom he had been together for nearly seventy years, recently also died. The joint funeral is planned for Tuesday 17th May, 12:45 pm at St.Georges Church, followed by a short service at Telford Crematorium and afterwards at St.Georges Sports & Social Club. Our thoughts and sympathies are with Eric and Millie’s family. They will both be remembered with affection by everyone at St.Georges Cricket Club.
