Sad news on passing of Robert Walker
The Club received the sad news this week of the passing on Monday of life member Robert Walker. 'Snapper Bob' was closely associated with the Club over a number of years and was a popular figure with our playing and social membership alike. Robert joined the Club as a Belfast High School youngster and remained an enthusiastic and industrious playing member throughout the 1990's, including a season as 4th. XI captain in 1998. A patient and determined opening bat and committed wicket keeper, Robert's whole-hearted efforts and dedication made him a respected captain and popular team-mate. His dedication to the Club extended beyond playing into the administration of the Club and his contributions as a committee member and service as Assistant Honorary Treasurer were greatly appreciated. The Club would like to express our sorrow at this tragic news and would extend our thoughts and sympathies to Robert's family at this time.
