(Sir) Bob Ridgway – MoM Osberton Radiators Cup 2003
“When we lose family and friends sometimes it is difficult to decide on an appropriate way to remember them. However when we are talking about Bob Ridgway it is easy – lets play cricket.
“A long-serving Thornborough Cricket Club player, secretary and umpire. A canny bowler of some repute in his playing days, he was also an extremely competent batsman, reaching three figures on at least one occasion. Mick stood in the South Northants Cricket League while also officiating in the Oxford Cricket Association league as well as umpiring county games at youth and senior level and also giving his support to girls’ and ladies’ cricket. Mick enjoyed trips to watch his beloved Kent CCC and watching Test matches both in this country and abroad also gave Mick extreme pleasure. To say the Thornborough community and TCC in particular have been stunned since Micks Passing. His contribution to TCC has been immeasurable and this memorial match is just a part of many fitting tributes. Replacing the irreplaceable is impossible but we, at Thornborough Cricket Club, will strive to reach the heights to which Mick himself always aspired.”
