Torquay CC are sad to announce the passing of John Mather after battling ill health for several years. John for the majority of his playing career played for the Corries. However, in later years, John joined Torquay CC to coach the youngsters – something both the club and the wider game of cricket will always be indebted to him for. John was also the driving force behind the club’s 3rd XI which enabled youngsters to gain their first experience of league cricket.
Our condolences go out to all his family but in particular Paul and Sam Carpenter, who on occasions ensured there was three generations of the same family representing the 3rd XI.
