Mick Litt Obituary, by Adam Horan
As Timperley Cricketers we are rarely in a position where we feel the buzz of a crowd, but perhaps thankfully we don’t have the pressures of expectant paying supporters. However, what we do have is a small group of people that, for whatever reason, choose to spend their weekend afternoons watching us play cricket.
I am sad to report that that number will be one less when the first ball is bowled in April.
Mick Litt was one of the kindest, warm-hearted men I have ever met and he had a genuine passion for Timperley Sports Club.
He would know how every team from the 1st XI to the over 40s had done and always congratulated you if you had performed well at any level. A pat on the back from Mick meant you had done alright, you could feel the enjoyment you had given him as he shared in your success or that of your team.
He also wasn’t afraid to tell you when a team was struggling but he did it in his typically polite way.
Mick took a genuine interest in new players and especially went out of his way to welcome new overseas players and as Matt Macquet tells me ‘he had a cup of tea with me most mornings, talked about cricket and understood the game he was really nice and very good to me.’
What most won’t know is that if it was not for Mick, Timperley Sports Club may not be in existence today. That’s a story for another time but those who are old enough will be forever grateful for what Mick did.
Timperley Cricket Club has lost one of its best, a part of the furniture, a good man.
Our Condolences go to Audrey, Dave and the rest of Mick’s Family at this sad time.
From all at Timperley Cricket Club
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
