BRIAN LANG RIP


Torquay CC are saddened to inform members of the passing of Brian Lang, a long-standing Vice President of the club at the age 88. 

Though Brian never played for the club, his last appointment with Barclays Bank was as Manager of their Totnes branch and he became a regular on the benches in front of the scorebox with fellow dual members of the cricket and rugby clubs – putting the world to right and in particular the two sports they were all so passionate about.  Ralph Spry is now sadly the sole survivor. 

During his playing days, wherever his banking career took him, Brian was a successful batsman and fell just two short of a 50 in his only appearance for Devon in 1956 at Instow verses Dorset. 

The thoughts of the club are with his family at this sad time.
