TWCC is deeply saddened to advise of the sudden death of Richard Powell, a much loved and respected member the club.
This has come as an enormous shock to all of the people who knew Richard. Richard was passionate about cricket and sport generally. He particularly loved his football and golf.
Richard had been a youth football coach at Rusthall FC for many years and they have provided a fitting tribute to his great contribution there. Richard was also a very talented cricketer and played for the Midland Bank for a number of years where he made many friends who will recall playing with and against him. Richard was part of the Midland team that won the South Thames League Division one title in 1981 and his playing career with them lasted from 1976 to 2001.
In 2002, Richard joined Linden Park and played for them until 2009 and the following year joined Tunbridge Wells where he and his son Ben played for many years very successfully. Ben and his dad played together in our 4s and were a major part of the team led by Charles Walker that had such a wonderful team spirit. Richard was always there to play his part if the team were short. Latterly, Richard and Ben had played for Penshurst Park with some close friends and his last game being at the end of September this year. Richard was a very friendly and warm hearted person with a deep knowledge of sport and he will be greatly missed by all of us at Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club and beyond.
Our love and thoughts are with Paula, Ben and all the family.
