The past six weeks has taught Evo, Torquay Cricket Club are a really one big family and with the expected passing of his mother the club are now one of his surrogate families. Whilst Evo would like to thank the club for sorting the Wake out in every aspect. To do individual thanks though would be too risky as Evo is sure he will forget someone.
However, one story though that shows Torquay CC is a family who looks out for each other. Over the summer Evo talked to some of the parents of the All Stars / Dynamos. One of the mums, Evo apologies he doesn’t know their name, who he’d spoken to a few times during the season, in recent weeks has been really kind to a virtual stranger.
With regards to the 1st XI League Averages, hopefully they will be done soon. As for the website, there will be some interesting articles over the winter. Hopefully though you will all appreciate cricket the last six weeks hasn’t been Evo’s priority – how Evo got through the home match v Hatherleigh CC was down to one person whose name Evo will never make public.
Having a knowledge of Grief through his work. Things are still at the early stages and in a few weeks Evo also faces the first anniversary of losing his closest colleague at work – Evo openly admits he hadn’t come to terms with before his recent lose. Evo knows there will be many bumps along the road – after the initial event the 12 week stage is scientifically proven to one of the of the worst.
Evo has never been a great one admitting to struggles well certainly until recent years and / or asking for help. Whilst it isn’t the easiest thing to want to say, with the close season upon us though please don’t make it out of sight out of mind.
Next season will actually be Evo’s 36th as 1st XI Scorer. To put it in some context he started with the 1st XI just weeks after the Hillsborough Disaster.
