Kent Cricket saddened by the death of scoreboard operator, Peter Newman

Thursday 29th November 2012

Earlier this week, the Club heard the very sad news that Kent Cricket scoreboard operator, Peter Newman had passed away.

Peter made a great contribution to Kent Cricket over a period of more than fifteen years, as a steward and then more recently as scoreboard operator in the Les Ames Stand. Local residents may also remember Peter for his work at Barton Post Office and Stores.

Chief Executive Officer, Jamie Clifford commented: “Peter will be much missed by all involved with Kent Cricket. He was always happy to help with anything the Club was doing and did so in a very committed way. He cared deeply about all things to do with Kent Cricket and we will all miss his enthusiasm around the Club.”

Peter's family have requested that those who wish to attend the funeral contact the Club for details.

Our thoughts are with Peter’s family at this sad time.
