There was an absolute tragedy at Kings Langley CC on Saturday as much-loved club member Dave Percy collapsed on the field and has passed away.

Club chairman Tony Burnell released the following statement to KLCC members: “It is with great sadness and with a heavy heart that I report the very untimely passing of one of our great cricketing personalities.

“Dave Percy has represented KLCC for over 40 years and has become one of the shining lights of all that is good about our club.

“He was an outstanding cricketer, a great friend and above all an amazing father and husband and will be greatly missed by all of us.

“Dave died doing what he loved, surrounded by his family and friends and although cruel that he has been taken from us at such an early age, he leaves us with so many happy memories and with a fondness in our hearts.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Tanya, Cassie, Ben and the rest of the family as well as with everyone that Dave touched in his own special way.

“We will pass on details of the appropriate arrangements at the request of the family in due course.

“Dave will be greatly missed by so many and remembered by all.”

> A more detailed tribute to Dave is likely to be reported at an appropriate time in the future but in the meantime we wish the club and family our sincere condolences.
