Gilly Palin

With great regret we report that Graham (“Gilly”) Palin passed away on Thursday 9th April 2019, after a long illness. Members and former members will remember Gilly with affection as the steward of St.Georges Sports and Social Club for many years before his retirement. In his younger years he was also an active participant in St.Georges sports clubs, notably the cricket club. He captained St.Georges 2nd XI for five years in the 1970s. After retiring as steward he did a couple of stints as caretaker steward and was a frequent visitor to the club on the “right” side of the bar as a member of the domino team. We send our condolences to June and his family. The funeral is at Telford Crematorium on Tuesday May 7th at 12:30 pm

Dennis Marsh Memorial Willow

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.”
