Hubert Cranston

Hubert has passed away at the age of 81, after a long illness.

He was a one club man having played cricket at Methody, then at Collegians and played for both the 1st and 2nd Elevens and captaining the latter over many seasons. He was an opening bowler who gathered a surprising amount of pace with a relatively short run up.

An Accountant by profession with Grant Thornton, he served on many NCU Committees before becoming Honorary Secretary in 1986. After retiring from the post in 1990 his service to the Union was recognised by being awarded Honorary Life Membership for services to the Union. An Award richly deserved.

Hubert will be greatly regretted by all his friends in the former Collegians Club.
Peter Wood.
