Following his heroics in the World Cup Final, Ben Stokes visited Sandair and was awarded a life membership of the club.

George Todhunter

posted 24 Feb 2017, 11:41 by Mike Chastney

The Chairman and Committee of Cockermouth Cricket Club are sad to announce the passing of our former Chairman and Life member George Todhunter. George was a stalwart of the Cricket Club for many decades and his commitment and dedication to our Club was never more amply demonstrated in his single minded determination to get the Club back on its feet following the catastrophic floods of 2009 and 2015.  He project managed the recovery on both occasions, securing funding from insurance companies, community foundations and statutory bodies and various charitable bodies. The Rotary Wall that now gives protection along the perimeter of the boundary closest to the River Derwent was secured by George's lobbying for support.

On 12 February 2017 a large number of members were present to see the naming ceremony of the George Todhunter Pavilion which reflected both the respect and admiration that Cockermouth Cricket Club felt for George. Being able to attend the naming ceremony with his family was a happy time for George and this was reinforced only 24 hours later when Cockermouth Cricket Club's most famous son, Ben Stokes, made a timely visit to see George immediately after his appointment as vice-Captain of the England Cricket team. This single action encapsulated what all of us felt in terms of deep respect and admiration for all that George did on our behalf over several decades as a player administrator and most of all leader. Our deepest condolences go to his wife Jean  and daughter's Emma and Sara. The town and community of Cockermouth will deeply mourn the loss of a man who left such an indelible and lasting mark on the place that he loved.
