It is with deep regret that the Committee has to advise the League of the passing away of Paul England.
Paul was a true stalwart of the Romford League representing a number of Clubs throughout his playing years. Most notably London Transport (Bus Garage) and Hornchurch LT Social Club, but also Cranston Park and Gidea Park Catholics. Paul played for Romford in Essex County Inter-League for the Vets, playing alongside our President Stan Taylor. When Paul played you had a totally committed player who loved to play ‘with pace’, as he would often say. Fiercely competitive and one who enjoyed a good ‘ding dong’ of a match. Paul hung up his bat some seasons back as he felt he wasn’t doing him self justice with his play and took on board other challenges.
Our thoughts go out to his son Mark (who also played in the Romford) at this time. Paul’s service will be held at Upminster Crematorium, Corbets Tey Road on Tuesday, 21st August at 10: 20 for those who wish to pay their respects.
