Absent Friends

Scarborough Cricket Club have set up this section to pay tribute to former members, players, and supporters of the club. This is a lasting memory to loved ones and friends who have supported and given so much to a very grateful club. 

This has been started in 2020, but we would really welcome brief biographies from relatives of those who passed prior to this year. If you'd like to contribute, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

We've names this section 'absent friends', and see it as a way to pay our respects to those who were friends to this great club.


John Midgley (Dec 2019). The club were sorry to learn that former Club Secretary John Midgely passed away on 31 December 2019. John was a club official from 1961 until 1975 starting as Assistant Club Secretary and later becoming Club Secretary.
John was a very popular man who left the club in 1975 to take up a role in the South of England. At the 1976 Annual General Meeting the club were delighted to elect John an Honorary Life Member.

Michael Sharman (Feb 2020).  We were sorry to receive news that long-standing Life Member Michael Sharman passed away on 18 February. Michael was a regular visitor to North Marine Road and had been a member since 1967. Everyone at Scarborough Cricket Club would like to pass on their sincere condolences to Margaret and the family.

Chris Welford (July 2020). Chris was a regular at North Marine Road to both county and club matches. He had been a Life Member for some time, and was well regarded by all those who knew him.

John Parkinson (April 2020). John Parkinson had been a life member of SCC for many years. I (daughter Katie) have many happy memories of meeting him for picnic teas at North Marine Road towards the end of the day's play in the late 60s/early 70s.

Eileen Tune (May 2020). Eileen passed away in May.  She was a member of SCC for over 20 years, I believe (son Chris). It was only the reduction of her mobility in 2018 that prevented her extending her membership. Her last day at North Marine Road was on the 25th June 2018 versus Surrey on a warm glorious day. Mum had some wonderful days the club, in all sorts of weather and enjoyed some great cricket and made some great friends. If you could mention her passing in any obituaries or newsletters then that way, people can be informed.

Bill Pincher (September 2019). William Leslie Pincher and first came to North Marine Road in 1971 at the same time as Phil Hart. He was known as either Pinch or Bill or Billy. Hard hitting batsman and right arm fast medium - deceptively fast off an innocuous and shortish run up.

He played in the first final at Lord's in 1972, and was the bowler when Colin Oxtoby caught and stumped the batsman off the same ball and each umpire had a finger raised!!! Following a spell with Saltburn Cricket Club he returned to North Marine Road as groundsman and played in the in the last Final at Lord's in 1982 when he scored 61 in a low scoring game including a huge six into the seats!

Bill was married to Sue and they had two girls Sarah and Vicky. For a period of time he lived in the groundsman’s flat which was situated above the former shop where the Jack Knowles building now stands at the main entrance into the ground.

Club Board member and former team-mate Nick Tubbs said ’’I remember a powerful and destructive batsman who could change a game in a few overs and often did. I think Harty would tell you that Pinch hit the biggest six he ever saw at Halifax CC; I recall the huge hit at Lord's in 1982 and also a hundred vs Doncaster Town in no time at all when up until his explosive innings SCC were progressing sedately and at risk of not setting a challenging score. As a bowler he was deceptively sharp off a short run and very good at the death when it was tight’’.

Madame Eleanor Mankowska (July 2020). Eleanor Mankowska passed away on her 101st birthday. She had been a Life member of Scarborough Cricket Club since 1944. Her father, Alderman Francis Whittaker, was club President on four separate occasions with her brother Sir Meredith Whittaker also being President when he held the post in 1978.

Stephen Gambrill (2020). Stephen became a member of Scarborough Cricket Club in 1992.

RD Gaunt (2020). Mr Gaunt had been a valued life member of the club.

MW Harrison (2020). Mr Harrison joined Scarborough Cricket Club in 1990.

Mrs V Sadler (2020). Mrs Sadler had been a life member of the club since 1992

Michael Bayes (2020). Michael became a Senior member of Scarborough Cricket Club in 1975

Gordon Bower (August 2020) - Gordon became a lifetime member in the late 1980’s when he moved to the area and was a regular visitor to the ground where he met many friends year after year. He always said there was no better place to watch cricket than the wonderful ‘Scarbados”!

JM Dunham (August 2020). Mr Dunham had been a Life Member at North Marine Road for some time.

Bryan Berryman (September 2020) Bryan had been a Life Member of Scarborough Cricket Club for some years.

BW Found (January 2020) Mr Found had been a Life Member since 1997

KFC Merchant (April 2020) Mr Merchant had been a Life Member since 2006

Connie Rennard (August 2020) Connie had been a Life Member since 1979. One of her sons had also played for the Club and even took the club team to Lords.

Mrs L Sedgwick (August 2020) Mrs Sedgwick had been a Life Member since 1977

Brian Richardson (August 2020) Mr Richardason had been a Member of Scarborough Cricket Club for some time and loved the times he had down at the Ground.

COVID 19 update to all players SCC.

Dear All

I hope this finds you safe and well and surviving in these extraordinary times.

You may well have seen recently a press release from the ECB suggesting that subject to certain controls and protections in place it is being suggested that Clubs certainly in England may like to look to resuming net practice as part of permitted daily exercise.

As a Club we are looking into this prospect although we do so with what I hope you will appreciate is understandable caution. The ECB press release and the guidance could be described as open to some degree of interpretation and just what is or may be possible in the way of re-opening the net facilities at North Marine Road is perhaps a matter of some debate.

The purpose of this communication is to ask you to respond to me direct if you will to confirm whether or not you would be interested in some form of net practice if the Club can accommodate that and is prepared to do so. I rather suspect that any decisions in this regard will have to be ratified by the Board and the processes to be followed approved by them. At this stage therefore can I please ask you to respond to me – preferably by email or text – (07885414550) to confirm whether or not you would have any interest in or appetite for net practices in the present climate.

To clarify on the subject of the resumption of matches the ECB has deferred all decisions on cricket both first class and recreational until beyond the 1 July 2020 and therefore I can give no firm details as to when if at all Club cricket matches will start this summer.

With all good wishes and the hope that you and your family are safe and well.

Yours sincerely

Nick Tubbs

Board Member

Scarborough Cricket Club have taken the decision to ‘furlough’ its administration staff due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

North Marine Road has been closed in accordance with the government’s ongoing advice during the nationwide lockdown. Volunteers will carry out only necessary tasks during this lockdown period.
At this unprecedented time, we have taken this positive step to protect Scarborough Cricket Club at a time when it has no income stream. By taking advantage of the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, we are able to preserve jobs at the club during such a difficult financial period.

The Club’s Ticket Office and Club Shop (including online sales) will not be in operation until further notice. Hospitality sales and queries will not be taken during this time.
Difficult decisions have been made to protect the long-term well being and stability of the club.

The latest information that we have from the ECB is that professional cricket will not be played in England and Wales until at least 1 July. This means that the first county championship match scheduled to start on 14 June between Yorkshire and Lancashire will now not take place. We have no further updates on the other county fixtures scheduled for the remainder of the summer at this point in time.

Refunds for cancelled games and other events will be made once the staff are back at work.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this unprecedented and traumatic time for our business and our country. Stay safe, and we will contact you once there has been a successful resolution to this awful pandemic.

We're running a 'fun' competition on Twitter to find out who the 'ultimate' favourite cricketer is. The cricketer must have played at North Marine Road for a county, international, or other 1st Class team. All the players have been nominated via Twitter from our followers, or those who have seen our competition.

It's totally for fun, and being staged in a knockout format in groups of four players. We'll run each stage for 3 days. All you have to do is vote via Twitter.

Once you've voted for a winner we will then run a similar competition to find out your favourite Scarborough CC player of all time.

This is a fun competition - no prize money - no trophy!

The first round groups of four are listed on the attachment. If this goes well we can always run another one!

Please stay safe.
