With sadness, we learned of the passing of Gerry Gladwell, who died on October 21st at the age of 94. Gerry was for many years a stalwart of Newport C.C.  and represented Shropshire as a wicketkeeper. He was particularly enthusiastic about fostering youth cricket, in the years before it was done in such an organised way as it is today. He will be fondly remembered by many of our (older) members, past and present as an amiable man who was always good company. The funeral service is on Saturday 2nd November 10:00 am at Telford Crematorium and afterwards at  the Royal Victoria Hotel, Newport.
