BROMYARD’S Jeff Bayliss has won Herefordshire Cricket’s Rob Staite Award this year.
He has been involved with the club for more than 40 years and founded Bromyard’s youth section 10 years ago.
“I didn’t expect to win this award and am delighted to be recognised — there are some fantastic names on the trophy,”
said the 59-year-old opener.
“I played cricket against Rob and remember him well.
It’s an honour to receive this trophy.”
Bayliss captained the first, second and third teams at various points, was secretary and now assists with the ground.
The sporty founder member of the town’s rugby outfit is currently club captain at Flaggoners Green.
The Rob Staite Award is presented annually in memory of the local player who was just 35 when he died of cancer.
His mother Beryl and Herefordshire Cricket’s Glyn Harrhy presented the trophy to Bayliss.
