Howard Davies RIP

Everyone at New Farnley Cricket Club are deeply saddened following the passing of Howard Davies earlier this week. Howard was simply a part of the club’s furniture and if ever there was a “Super” Loyalty Card holder, Howard would have been top of the list, whether it was on a Wednesday evening having a drink and a chat with his close friends, having a meal on a Thursday evening with his family, having a “Happy couple of hours” socialising on a Friday tea time, enjoying a breakfast on a Saturday morning whilst waiting for Mags in the gym, being a “member” of the “Western Terrace Ultras” on cricket matchdays and being a regular supporter and attendee at many of the club’s social events. He was always very jovial and sociable and loved his family dearly, more often or not his conversation would start with “Are Andy”, everyone enjoyed his company, whether it was whilst talking to the ground staff when walking the dogs, listening to his thoughts and opinions on @leedsunited or having a quick chat whilst he ferried and shuttled drinks from the bar. Our thoughts go out to all of the family, Mags, Andy, Claire, Niamh, Ruby, Ian, Harry, Austin, Bronwyn, John, James, Nicola and his close friends, Dave Watson, Mick Punter, Mick Hector & Pat Graham plus many, many more. Prior to today’s (Saturday 1st June 2024) game against Ossett, we held a minutes silence at 11:45am as a mark of tribute. We will all miss him dearly. RIP Howard Davies 🙏
