News from La Manga CC website, thanks to La Manga CC member Dave Moore for forwarding the article to Cricket Espana.
Sadly, we lost one of our characters of La Manga Cricket Club, Mike Garside, who recently passed away very suddenly. He was a great team player who gave alot to cricket at La Manga Cricket Club and was awarded “Highest Individual Score” last season for 179 not out.
This award was collected by his parents, Debbie and Alan Garside at our Xmas Presentation dinner in December. At the presentation, they kindly donated E200 to the Youth Development of cricket at La Manga – many thanks Alan and Debbie.
In recognition of Mike, Cricket Espana have created a trophy for “The Best Junior Cricketer in Spain” which this year was won by our own Ravi Panchal of La Manga CC. This trophy will be awarded each year.
Michael – you are sadly missed by us all, you were such a great character.
