Lytham Cricket Club are sad to announce that Chairman Len Hackett passed away peacefully on Friday 31st January after a short illness.
"Len will be desperately missed by all at Lytham Cricket and Sports Club and no doubt by all cricketers and officials whose paths he crossed during his lifetime around the North West and especially the Fylde Coast, where he helped shape the lives of many budding cricketers. He served Lytham CC for the past 20 years, sitting on the club’s cricket committee throughout all his time at Church Road and had been chairman for the last eight seasons.
Up until a couple of summers ago he was also a permanent fixture umpiring both our 2nd and 3rd XI's as well as officiating many midweek junior matches .
We will all greatly miss his warmth and wise words about cricket matters and life in general."
The funeral will take place at Lytham Crematorium on Friday 21st Feb, 1.30pm, followed by a celebration of Len’s life at Lytham Cricket Club.
Fellow Cricketers and friends are very welcome to attend.
