It is with great sadness that I write to advise all members and friends of North Enfield that our long serving president, member and friend Alan Wood sadly passed away last night after a short illness. I know that you will all join me in passing our best wishes to Malcolm, Ralph and the rest of the family at this sad time.
On a personal note I cannot remember Alan not being at the club, he was an instrumental player in the Saturday 3s in the early 90s giving much support to us up and coming juniors, together with the likes of John Head, Barry Long, Peter Johnson, John Perry, Malcolm and Ralph. After reluctantly hanging up his boots, Alan was an ever present figure popping up to support the home eleven from his deckchair with his essential accessory; a cup of tea.
Alan was so so pleased to see the junior section going from strength to strength and to see all the progress we have made in recent years on and off the pitch. Ever interested, optimistic and cheery; Woody may you rest in peace.
Details on the family's wishes over the coming weeks to follow.....
With very best wishes
Chairman, North Enfield Cricket Club
