Hertfordshire Cricket is happy to announce that the first Club Volunteer of the Month Award has been given to a member of a cricket club in Kings Langley recently.
Tony Thompson of Kings Langley Cricket Club, (KLCC) has been a member of KLCC for more than 60 years, 40 of those years spent captaining various sides.
He continues to serve as Club Steward, organising all of the club lettings that contribute significantly to the club’s income, all of which he does freely, never charging for his time or effort. He’s still well-connected in the neighbourhood, and he’s committed to keeping the club at the centre of the community.
Tony, who is now in his 70s, still plays for the third or fourth XIs and, according to his nominator, is still the club’s most dependable bowler.
Tony will be awarded his award from Hertfordshire Cricket, as well as a £200 Gray Nicolls voucher for the club.
A spokesperson for Kings Langley cricket club said: “Tommo is the essence of what local clubs need. Someone who selflessly does everything that is required and who keeps coming back for more. 40 years as a Captain of the club, over 10 as Treasurer, and still the main contact for everyone who rents to club. He still plays for KLCC when needed and represents Herts over 60s and ‘70s. A club legend.”
