The committee are much saddened to announce the passing at the age of 86 of our former President, 1st XI Captain and Honorary Life Member John Winter. Our sincere condolences go out to Maureen, his family and all his friends and our thoughts are with them all at this sad time.
In a 1st XI Career spanning 29 years from 1947 to 1976 John scored 7659 runs at an average of 16.8 with a highest score of 94 and with John passing the 50 mark on 58 occasions.
Despite suffering from illness in the past couple of years, John was still a regular visitor to Bentgate to watch the cricket when his health and the weather permitted. His passing is a sad loss to the Club.
John’s funeral will be held on Wednesday, April 25th. There will be a service at St Mary Magdalene, Gawthorpe Road, Burnley at 1.15pm and then Burnley Crematorium at 2.20pm.
Further information will be added this post as it becomes available.

The HCC committee are determined to make major steps in improving the facilities of Haslingden CC for players, supporters and the wider community but we cannot do it without YOU, our members, friends and family helping YOUR CLUB. Our main target for 2016 is to build a modern ‘non turf’ practice facility for our junior and senior players. Can you consider assisting either by :
HELPING US TO BUY THE METRES – ARE YOU WILLING & ABLE TO DONATE – £125 HELPS US TO BUY ½ METRE. Of course smaller donations are more than welcome as every pound really will help. If you are able to commit more, then of course this would also be much appreciated.
LIFETIME MEMBERSHIPS – a limited number of these memberships still remain open.
SPONSORSHIP – opportunities exist as noted in recent communications.
