Andover Cricket Club News story


Remembering Liz Hall

31 Mar 2021

The club are extremely saddened to learn that Liz Hall MBE has passed away.
Over many decades, Liz dedicated her life to community service in Andover. Her work at the cricket club was just one
part of this, yet it is hard to overstate the extent of her impact and her importance in the club's recent history.
In the 1970s, Liz became a pillar of the cricket club, inspiring hundreds (possibly thousands) of young people in Andover
to give the sport of cricket a go. She remained fully involved well into her 80s, organising fixtures, running training
sessions, managing sides and scoring. Without her efforts Andover CC would not remotely resemble the thriving club it
is today.
The achievements of Liz extend far beyond the cricket club and a full eulogy that adequately recognises the immense
breadth of Liz's impact will be released in due course. The committee will discuss ways to appropriately commemorate
and remember a phenomenal life of community service.

Our thoughts and condolences are fully with Liz's family.
