Last season marked the end of an era for the ladies section, as David Parry stepped down from umpiring after many years of service to the club. Apparently it all started with a bit of pressganging (from unnamed parties), after which he never looked back and the ladies section was blessed with knowing that they would always have one umpire available.

David (or ‘Mr Parry’, as he was deferentially known by the ladies section, always keen to stay the right side of an umpire) was back at KGV on Tuesday for a short ceremony to thank him for everything he has done for the club and the handing over of a small token of our appreciation.

We wish him all the best
