Lordswood CC are deeply shocked and saddened to announce the sudden and untimely death last Monday, 19th February, of another of our founding fathers, Peter Edmonds.


There from day one Peter was instrumental in the creation, development and rise of Lordswood Cricket Club. One of crickets unsung heroes and ridiculously modest, Peter was there when the first spade dug into what is now Martin Grove, the home of Lordswood CC, Lordswood FC, Lordswood RFC and Lordswood Petanque clubs. Spending many an hour on the ground with his band of helpers he was still the Ground Manager and at the time of death he was President of the Cricket Club. His calm and unassuming nature smoothed the way on so many occasions with the minimum of fuss. The magnificent facilities at Martin Grove are a living memorial to Peter and his presence on them will be sorely missed. His family, friends and colleagues are all in deep shock and sadness at his sudden passing after a short illness. He is reunited with his dear old friend Colin Gardener, to whom we only said farewell to, three weeks ago.


RIP Peter.

Please note for the close season that the process for player registrations and transfers have changed. Please see HERE. Club administrators now need to keep an eye out in their Play-Cricket admin section for such requests which should, as with the old process, be dealt with in a timely manner.

Catford & Cyphers Cricket Club would like to announce the sad passing of former Cricket Club President Geoff Lockwood. Geoff was a member of Catford Cricket Club and then Catford & Cyphers CC from the early 1970’s until his death on the 17th December 2017.


Geoff originally joined us from Bexleyheath CC. He was a player, Captain, Committee member, Umpire and finally Cricket Club President of our Club. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him for his long term commitment to our Club but mostly because of his strong sense of humour.

Geoff attended many of our Cricket tours where his presence significantly enhanced our off field activities.


Our condolences go out to his wife Jean and his family.


Geoff’s funeral will take place on the 19th January at Hither Green Crematorium. Please contact Richard McCaughin on 07775-545794 if you need any further details.
