Surrey CCC Remembers Mark Collin at The Oval
Surrey CCC will tonight pay tribute to Mark Collin at The Oval, a gesture which is enormously appreciated by the Club.
- At tonight’s NatWest T20 Blast quarter-final against the Birmingham Bears, the Guard of Honour that the players run through on their way out to the field will be formed of children from Effingham’s junior section, standing in Mark’s name.
- The Surrey players will also wear black armbands and photos of Mark will be displayed on the ground’s Big Screen.
- Elsewhere this weekend, cricket matches around the county will begin with a moment’s silence in his memory.
Paul Taylor, Director of the Surrey Cricket Foundation, said:
“Everyone at Surrey CCC was deeply saddened when we heard the news of what had happened in Newdigate on Saturday afternoon. The support Effingham have received from the cricketing community this week has been incredible and SCC are very happy that we are able to pay tribute to Mark at our match tonight.”
Adam Burlison, Effingham Cricket Club Captain, said:
“This is an incredible gesture from Surrey CCC. Their support has been absolutely superb and we are very grateful for everything they have done to help us commemorate Mark, not just at The Oval tonight but around the county on Saturday. Our most sincere thanks go to Paul Taylor for arranging everything.”
