Simon Porter

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of Dr.Simon Porter.
Simon was heavily involved in the founding of the Cherwell League and was current President of the League.

He will be greatly missed in Oxfordshire cricketing circles to which he contributed so much and further afield.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ros and the family at this difficult time.

The whole Cherwell League Committee echo the sentiments below written by our past Chair Clive Ricks:

It is with much sadness that I learnt today of the passing of the Cherwell League founder and President, Simon Porter. As Secretary of Cowley St John CC I worked with Simon in the early days of the Cherwell League and played both against him, when he represented Headington CC, and with him for the Oxfordshire Minor Counties side. He was a great competitor on the field and not one to shy away from the odd post-match beverage! 'Sport' will be greatly missed in Oxfordshire and OUCC cricketing circles to whom he contributed so much. My thoughts go out to Ros and the rest of his family and I look forward to meeting him in the 'Great Tavern in the Sky' to relive old memories
