Robert Humphreys as retired as secretary to the North Someret Youth Cricket League after 27 years.
Robert Humphreys was surprised to be greeted by past and present members of North Somerset Youth Cricket League committee and youth coordinators, who were guests of the Somerset Cricket Board & Somerset County Cricket Club at the Specsavers Championship match between Somerset and Surrey, celebrating his retirement as secretary and treasurer of the league.
Robert has been an outstanding servant to the grassroots game in Somerset giving 27 years’ service as secretary and more recently treasurer, running almost all aspects of the league to ensure it ran smoothly.
Robert has not only served the North Somerset Youth Cricket League, but also given many years of volunteering to Failand & Portbury Cricket Club, where he also recently retired from.
To recognise Robert’s services to the league, the committee had a glass decanter with glasses, supplied by Trophyman Supplies, which was presented by Somerset player Lewis Gregory.
