I am sorry to inform you of the death of Derek, yesterday. Some of you will probably know his son Ian who has worked at the Ageas Bowl for many years.

Opening bowler Derek was our ‘senior pro’ having made his first-class debut in 1956 (v Gloucs) and in the following year he played once more against a strong Cambridge University side (including Bob Barber and Ted Dexter). Sadly he didn’t take a wicket and that was the end of his first-class cricket although he was still playing Southern League Cricket for OTs in his mid-fifties.

His death leaves Alan Wassell (debut 1957) as our senior pro, followed by Barry Reed and Dennis Baldry – the latter (91) is our oldest living player.

I remember playing against Derek at Dean Park in the Southern League in about 1971. I was playing for Bournemouth Amateurs and he for OTs. They thumped us and my memory tells me he got a 100.
