In Memoriam: Tony Crook
It was with immense sadness that the Lancashire Cricket Foundation learned of the death of Tony Crook last week.
Tony made an immeasurable contribution to Thornham Cricket Club having been a Committee Member for more than forty years, as well as, in turn, Treasurer, Secretary, Chairman, President and finally Life Vice-President.
His influence was not limited to Thornham, however, and he served as Chairman of the Lancashire County Cricket League from its inception in 1994 until 2007, after which he was the League President, and also chaired the Lancashire Cricket Board. His prudent leadership and attention to detail made him a most effective leader of both these organisations and extended his influence in cricket at grass-roots from local to county-wide. He was also a Lancashire Vice-President.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
