Bereavements, Obituaries, Eulogies

Jonathan Rogers

Published on Mar 9, 2018
It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the passing of Jonathan Rogers, brother to Nick and devoted husband to Celine.
Although Jon only played 11 matches at O'50's level, he averaged almost 55 with the bat, scoring four half centuries.
Our thoughts are with the Rogers family at this difficult time.

Stuart Munday

It is with great sadness that we hear of Stuarts passing. All members of Devon County Seniors Cricket Club pass their sincere condolences to Wendy and family at this difficult time.

Stuart fought his cancer in the same way as he played cricket. Determination, spirit and optimism. He was positive right to the end.

I and everyone associated with Devon Seniors owe him so much. His unrivalled passion and sincere belief in senior’s cricket rubbed off on so many people and he persuaded so many older cricketers to continue playing after the age of 50 and keep fit and competitive

Not only was Stuart a very good cricketer he also was a man who believed in putting back into the game his excellent administrative skills and he spent countless hours raising money for seniors cricket and then taking on the captaincy of the 60s 2nd X1.He was a club man through and through and  an example to us all

I mentioned combative and determination earlier and I and others on the committee soon learnt that if Stuart believed in something then low and behold if you disagreed. I know, I felt the sharp end on more than one occasion but Stuart held no grudges, moved on, shook hands and told you he was right after all.  Committee meetings just won't be the same and we shall all miss him greatly

Stuart gave everything to cricket believing in the team ethos & Devon Seniors benefitted greatly. He played for the newly formed Devon Over 60s 1st X1 from inauguration & then in 2012 captained the new 60s 2nd X1 to great success .He stepped down in 2015 having captained the side to three championships

He became Treasurer in 2007 taking over finances worth a few hundred pounds & leaving the club now financially secure .He cajoled, persuaded & pursued sponsorship, advertising & grants. Goodness knows how many hours he spent. He organised the Annual dinner’s right up to 2015 & these were great events for us all .With four different teams it was a great opportunity for all players & sponsors to meet & those many evenings will be cherished & remembered

He went on many overseas tours with the seniors & the tales about Stuart will be told forever.  I have many! He & Wendy were such great company .Generous & simply lovely people to be on tour with
To replace Stuart Munday is impossible. I and others were so lucky to know him, work with him and play with him. We will miss him greatly but we are all so lucky to have been so closely associated with him

A special person, a special face
Someone we love and can't replace
Never selfish, always kind
These are the memories he left behind

Thank you Wendy for the hours he spent on Devon County Seniors Cricket. We are all thinking of you at this difficult time
