It is with the greatest regret that I must report the passing, yesterday, of Russ Abbott,

a stalwart of the Over-50’s, 60’s, and 70’s for many years, and a real character, as well as being a real gentleman. Russ passed away in hospital, after a short illness. Our condolences are sent to Edie, his widow, and to his two daughters, and their families, who were regular visitors to Over 60’s matches, especially the tour matches in Yorkshire.
As yet, we have no details of the funeral, but as soon as they are received they will be posted here.
