Shenfield CC were deeply saddened to hear about the untimely passing of Byron Wyngard.
Byron will be remembered as a great cricketer and a genuinely all round good guy.
We send our sincere condolences to Byron’s family, friends and cricketing comrades.
Here is a photo of the lovely Byron.
Two players who new Byron well want to share their thoughts with us -
It comes with great sadness and as a huge shock to us all to learn about the passing of Byron Wyngard.
Shenfield Cricket Club had the pleasure of hosting Byron for the summer of 2015. He was an incredibly talented cricketer whose efforts helped us gain promotion to the Premier League for the 2016 season. More importantly, he was an immensely kind and caring person. He was loved by everyone here at Shenfield, with his smile, kind natured personality and winning attitude shining through and onto everyone around him.
We send our sincere condolences to Byron's family, friends and those at his home club of Victoria Cricket Club.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Byron was the nicest bloke we’d ever meet. He was everything you’d want from an overseas and more - surpassing expectations on the pitch, but more importantly off the pitch. He ability was only matched by his personality.
Our promotion that summer was not coincidental, and our success was down to him. Shenfield CC are in debt to Byron and what he gave us that summer. A quite exceptional 130 jumps to mind that year helped us beat Woodford Wells- in which he hit some incredible shots!
Such was his nature, Byron even hosted Shenfield High Schools tour to Cape Town a year later and less willingly a few of the 2nd teams trip out for a Cape Town test match!
Byron, rest in peace mate. From so many friends at Shenfield CC.
