Club news item

Gentlemen and Players ....

Alas I am contacting you all to announce the sad passing of our long-time President Bert Vandermark...

I earlier received a call from his daughter to say that Bert died on Sunday.
It’s thought that he maybe had a heart attack.

Bert was President of our VPCCL for a couple of decades or more, having formerly played in the league in the early days for Finsbury Park CC 
Some of you and your players might not have know Bert, but many have known him well over the years.
In the last couple of years, he continued to come along to matches on his mobility scooter.

Bert was a legend.
I’m sure we’ll look to commemorate him in some way.

We will send formal condolences to his wife Rita and family on behalf of the league.
