John Gates

(January 20, 2014)

Pyestock Cricket Club were saddened to learn of the death of former player and chairman John Gates who passed away on 6th January 2014.

Primarily a batsman, John scored 304 runs between 1988 and 1994, as well as claiming 3 catches. 

John replaced outgoing chairman Bill Abbott for the 1993 season and held the post until himself stepping down at the end of the 2006 season. John's chairmanship will be remembered as one where the needs and welfare of the club were always put before everything else, and John was always first to thank those who gave up their time to make sure the club was running smoothly.

Pyestock Cricket Club send their condolences to John's family at this sad time.
