Ralph Anthony's plaque on one of the KGV benches. 

R E H Anthony

For those either involved in Inter-Island cricket or team-mates and competitors in domestic island cricket Ralph was always a formidable force. He served both Guernsey and Salemites CC loyally over the years and his 23 caps for Guernsey in Inter Insular matches was only equalled by Warren Barrett. More recently Ralph had played Channel Island Over 50's cricket.

Even when his playing career slowed Ralph was a regular attendee at the (as then) annual GCA meetings and ensured all on the top table were kept on their toes.

Ralph played his cricket hard but fair and was very much a traditionalist often heard grumbling about the introduction of white balls to local cricket, and even pink ones ! 

He will be very sadly missed by all, and a suitable recognition of his service to local cricket will be forthcoming.
