We are grateful to Sheila Angeloff, sister of former prominent St.Georges and Shropshire cricketer Dennis Marsh, for sending us this item of news. Dennis recently died and several St.Georges members attended his funeral in Bristol in January this year, where he had lived for many years after leaving the area. His son Tom, also a cricketer said “We buried Dad’s ashes this morning. This is his cricket bat willow that the cricket club had donated. In years to come when the tree is big enough, it will be cut down to make cricket bats. Dad’s ashes are at the roots, so he will be part of the tree. We didn’t have many words to say whilst burying the ashes… Because at those kind of moments, only dad had enough words to describe any moment. We can visit the tree at any moment, especially when I get a duck whilst getting caught at cow corner.”
