"I've had the pleasure of knowing Nigel for over thirty years as a competitor, coach for the Salford schools and later as player / Secretary of East Lancashire Paper Mill within the old North Manchester Cricket League.

Nigel was always approachable and very knowledgeable in all aspects of recreational cricket and I had the pleasure of calling him a friend. His legacy lives on through all his cricket activities and the Board of the GMCL pass on their heartfelt condolences to Nigel's family and army of friends.

In our thoughts and prayers Nigel."
