It was with sadness that members learned of the passing of our club chairman Billy Boyd at hospital this morning. Billy has had a long history with the club, starting off as a player with the youth teams of Lurgan Cricket Club and subsequently serving on various committees within Lurgan Rugby Football and Cricket Club. As well as being chairman of the club, Billy also acted as club president and was secretary of the cricket section for a number of years. His skills in cricket administration were not exclusive to us at Lurgan as Billy represented the Club for many years at the Northern Cricket Union, where he maintained a high profile, serving both as President, Chairman and participating in many committees. Among some of Billy’s excellent achievements was the managing of international cricket matches at Stormont, including the visit of England a few years ago.
Our thoughts and sympathies are with Sandra, Janine, Jonny and the wider family circle at this sad time. Billy will be greatly missed by us all.
The funeral will take place on Sunday 10th March at 3pm in Holy Trinity Parish Church, Waringstown. Family and friends are welcome at the home, 6,Oaklands, Waringstown
