The committee are very sad to announce the passing of our former player Alan W Massicks over the weekend. Our sincere condolences go out to his family, friends and in particularly his sister Anne who cared for Alan through his illness, daughter Sophie & nephew Ryan. Our thoughts are with them all at this sad time.

Many tales will undoubtedly be recounted over the coming days and weeks as Alan brightened up so many days, in so many ways for so many people. RIP Mad Dog.

Alan’s funeral will take place at Burnley Crematorium on Thursday 20 October at 1.40pm. For those who want to celebrate Alan’s life and share in a whole host of memories with friends and family, drinks at Haslingden Cricket Club will follow the service.
