It is with deep sorrow we announce the passing of Alan Laycock

It is with a heavy heart that the club has to announce the sad passing of our former President Alan Laycock, who passed away peacefully on Sunday 3rd March.

Alan was the ultimate ambassador for Odiham & Greywell and a legend in his own right.

Alan was an exceptional wicket keeper, keeping for our 1st XI into his 60's. He was also the club historian, who could answer even the most obscure club history question with ease. He also made sure the club was well reported on in the local media.

The OGCC Family would like to wish his family and friends our heartfelt condolences.

Thank you Alan for all your hard work over the years.


The Final Innings

Let us gather, my friends, in the twilight's glow,
To celebrate the life, of the cricketer we know,
The runs and the wickets, the victories won,
A love for the game, that'll never be undone.

In every stride, each ball that takes flight,
We'll remember your journey, your unwavering fight,
Through joy and sorrow, laughter and tears,
The innings you played, the memories we'll revere.

The final innings, a tribute we raise,
To the cricketer we loved, in so many ways,
A celebration of life, a love evergreen,
On the pitch of our hearts, forever serene.
