Len Watkins RIP

By Harri Kallas

Len passed away on Sunday February 17th

I am sorry to have to inform members and friends of the sad passing of Len, a Vice President of the club.

Len joined the club in the early 1980’s and soon became actively involved – from helping set up the junior section, through to Umpiring the 1st XI as well as the Women’s XI, followed by a lengthy stint as Chairman of Cricket.

Whilst Len only played the occasional game of social cricket at Hayes, he had already enjoyed a very successful playing career, primarily at Walthamstow Cricket Club, playing 1st XI cricket into his forties.

His sage advice was always sought after by captains of the club and he was always willing to help at club functions – his £100 raffle on Presidents Day was legendary!

We recently celebrated his 85th Birthday and are now deeply saddened that he has been dismissed.

Further details of arrangements will follow.
