It is my sad duty to advise you that former Newton CC stalwart Malc Addy passed away last week.
Malcolm served Newton well in the 50s and 60s and was a talented all rounder, in fact he even took 6 stumpings in one match as a stand in keeper!
He was so well thought of at Newton that when illness prevented him working, a benefit match was held for him on June 24th 1956 raising a huge amount (in those days) of £60
I had the pleasure of meeting Malc at the centenary celebrations and I pass on our condolences to his family and friends at this sad time.
The Funeral will take place on Thursday 25th April at 11:30 at Dukinfield crematorium and then on to Dukinfield Golf club for the wake.
