Today we remember a much-loved community figure who passed from our lives one year ago to this day. Ian Huckerby was known to many in Balsall Common for his 24 years of dedicated and unstinting service as Youth Manager at Berkswell Cricket Club. He was deeply admired and respected by many children, parents and players past and present, both at Berkswell and Warwickshire County Cricket Club. To many cricketers, Ian’s contribution went way beyond cricket and his loss has been deeply felt.
Ian left a great legacy at Berkswell Cricket CLub at Meeting House Lane, fostering a youth policy that became one of the stepping stones that set the club on a trajectory towards playing at the highest level outside of county cricket, as it does today.
Our thoughts today are with Ian’s wife Sue, children James, Charlie, Georgina and grandchildren, Millie, Brooke, Max, Pippa and Lola.
Ian has been greatly missed.
