It is with great sadness that we have learnt that two Dorridge stalwarts have passed away.
FRANK KNIGHT, who would have reached his Century next month, was a former First Team Skipper and Club Umpire. He was one of life's Gentlemen and an enthusiastic follower of Dorridge Cricket.
DEREK JEWSBURY, a teammate of Frank's during the 1960's, was one of the best all rounders to have played for the club and also enjoyed his time as a Club Umpire. Derek passed away last April aged 90.
They will be missed.
We can all imagine what Frank & Derek would have made of recent Test Result (5th India v England)

Overheard in Doctor's Waiting Room recently.
"What has happened to the pride of playing for a draw? A consequence of one day cricket and the attitude of the one day player, illustrates how the game has changed in a relatively short period and with ECB plans for T20 cricket to dominate the summer months from 2020 with Championship pushed to the fringes of April/May and September I fear that the game I played and enjoyed is slipping away for good"
