Tributes paid to supporter and writer Martin Moseling

Monday 8th June 2015

Kent Cricket Heritage Trust committee member, cricket writer and lifelong supporter Martin Moseling has died.

Martin co-wrote A Half-Forgotten Triumph: The Story of Kent's County Championship Title of 1913 with Tony Quarrington.

More recently, Martin served as part of the Heritage Trust who work to preserve and promote the club's rich historical heritage and artefacts.

The Trust recently installed new display cabinets for important trophies and artefacts in the Chiesman Pavilion and provide regular exhibitions to increase awareness of Kent Cricket and its social and cultural context.

Martin produced much of the material for the display marking the centenary of the First World War and the involvement of several Kent Cricket figures, which went on show during Canterbury Week 2014.

Kent Cricket CEO Jamie Clifford said: "The Club has lost one of its most loyal supporters. Martin will be much missed as a champion of the Club's rich history and traditions. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time."

The Club's flag will fly at half mast today in recognition of Martin's passing.

The funeral for Martin Moseling will take place on Friday, 10 July. The initial service will be at Cheltenham crematorium at 10.30am. This is a private family service. The main service will be at the Church of St Nicholas in Teddington, a short walk from Martin’s House, at 12.15 pm. The address of this twelfth century Grade One listed building is St Nicholas Close, Teddington, Gloucestershire GL20 8TT. The service is designed to be a celebration of Martin’s life. Refreshments will be available afterwards. If anyone should wish to attend, I’d be grateful if you could let me know, either by personal message or e mail at tonyquarrington@msn.com
