It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Philip Prior, son of Vernon and Nicola, died in late December. Philip was a highly rated keeper/batsman and a true Shenfield team member. He played for our colts and progressed through the senior teams. One of ‘Pip’s most memorable innings was a hard earned 92 at Horndon on the Hill whilst the rest of the team struggled. Philip was the grandson of our former president, John Burrows and his wife Greta. The whole family, including brother James, were all regulars at the club. We extend our sympathies to all his friends and family.
There will be a service at the Herongate Wood Cemetery at 2pm on Thursday Jan 23rd, followed by a family only cremation. There will be a wake at Bentley Golf Club after that.
There is a tributes and donations page on Love2Donate.

We are very sad to have to report that Roger Towler died in his sleep on 4th November.
The service will be held at Bentley Crematorium on Monday the 9th of December at 2-30 and reception afterwards at Ashwells Country Club.
Roger was a real gentleman, great company and extremely generous. He will be sorely missed sitting outside the pavilion on a Saturday afternoon enjoying a laugh and a drink, whilst regaling us with cricket anecdotes and his association with Jack Petchey.
Roger was a man who had time for everybody and was respected by all in the club.
Here is a photo of Roger taken at the Bertie Joel Final in 2013.

Will he now prove a handful for Lord Sugar in The Apprentice?
