Word reached us today from Audrey Parry in Australia, that her husband Doug Parry passed away on 28th April, aged 90, after a short illness. Doug was a leading player for the club in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. He was an allrounder who represented Shropshire many times. At the time of his emigration to Australia in the 1960s he was county vice-captain. He never returned to this country, but followed the club’s progress regularly via this website. Stan Higgins, club president, remembers him as a fine player and a good friend. Click on pictures to enlarge.

Doug Parry is pictured here on his wedding day at St.Georges with Stan as best man. Older members might spot one or two other St.Georges oldtimers in the picture.
