Winsley Cricket Club News story

Phil Taylor

15 Jun 2020

Phil Taylor our President sadly died on 21st May suddenly at home.  He was 72.   Phil joined the Club as a player in 1975, a redoubtable opening batsman and occasional wicketkeeper who became club captain, chairman twice and latterly our president. He will be sorely missed as will his enthusiasm for cricket and the club.  He particularly helped promote the development of youth cricket and he was immensely proud the way the Club had progressed over the recent years.

Phil and Jenny supported the Club off the field each year at the President's Day event passing on their hosting skills  gained from their time at The Dandelion.  They were also good at drumming up other supporters to attend other Winsley Fund Raising Events.

He will be greatly missed at Winsley.  Players old and new had huge respect for Phil
