EIGHT GREATS HONOURED... VOTE FOR FOUR MORE


TWELVE of the island's all-time cricketers are to be honoured with specially designed concrete seating benches at the King George V Field, home of island cricket.
The first raft of eight former players, many of which have passed on, were announced at a Sports Commission ceremony at KGV this evening (Wednesday) in the presence of the Bailiff, Sir Richard Collas, who is also chairman of the KGV Trustees.
The eight announced all represented the island with great distinction and were chosen by a panel of three experts - Former jurat and cricketer Alan Bisson, GCB statistician and historian John Mountford, and Guernsey Press sports editor, Rob Batiste.
They are, in alphabetical order - Ralph Anthony, Warren Barrett, Vernon Collenette, Pierre Le Cocq, John Martel, Ricky Mills, Robin Roussel and Mike Webber.
Most were either present or represented at the ceremony which also saw Commission chairman Stuart Falla MBE announce that the Guernsey branch of Lord's Taverners had made a very sizeable generous donation to the ongoing building of what will be called the Lord's Taverners Pavilion.  
All told 30 concrete benches will be dotted around the ground perimeter and the final four honoured cricketers will be chosen soon as a result of public feedback.
If you wish to nominate a former great of the game, then email your suggestion to GCB CEO Mark Latter at mark@guernseycricket.com, text to 07911 722145 or write to him at the GCB Office, KGV, Rue Cohu, Castel, GY5 7SZ.
