Craig Sloane (Wickford Cricket Club)

The South Essex District Cricket Board are saddened to learn of the passing of Craig Sloane, second eleven captain of Wickford Cricket Club. The following information has been provided by Alan Moss, Hon. Secretary of Wickford:

“For me, Craig was a top man and a great guy, with boundless energy and enthusiasm. I am struggling to imagine not seeing Craig around the club and being able to chat with him. Craig leaves a massive, unfillable hole, not just at the club but in the hearts of his many, many, friends, who, like me, are finding this situation very difficult to comprehend and extremely distressing.  At this awful time, our thoughts are with Nikki, Joshua, Adam and the family”.

Craig’s funeral was held on Wednesday 13th June at Basildon Crematorium.  Donations may be made at Wickford Cricket Club, towards the cost of a new boundary rope, something that Craig was particularly keen to get for the club.
