THE PRIDE & THE PASSION

Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club is an amateur cricket club in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent. 
Founded in 1782, the home teams play their matches at the picturesque Nevill Ground.

PETER LLOYD

Everyone at TWCC was incredibly saddened to hear the news of Peter Lloyd’s passing, and would like to send heartfelt condolences  to June and the entire family.

 

Peter was a very popular and gifted all-round player and a respected captain both at Youth and Senior level. He first played for TWCC in 1952 (as far as can be traced) and played 611 matches throughout his time at the club, until 1986. In that time he attained thirtieth spot in the TW batting pantheon, playing 436 innings (118 not out), scoring 5554 runs at an average of 17-52, with 12 fifties and a solitary century.

He bowled 3302.2 overs, 651 Maidens, and captured 603 wickets at 16-71 with 15 5-wicket hauls. He took 141 catches as well, with 12 run-outs.

 

Peter was a very well-liked personality and always welcomed at The Nevill, and he will be greatly missed. His kindness and support of the players and the club as a whole will always be remembered. 

 

The flag is flying at half-mast on the pavilion, and a glass or two will be raised in his memory this weekend.
