Today the club has been informed of the passing of one of its members, Albert Hayton, aged 73, after a long illness. Albert was a long-standing member of the club for over 20 years. He had worked at BT and played regularly down here at Ryton Golf Club so will be known to many of our members. Thoughts are with Albert's family and friends at this time.
Albert's funeral will be held at the West Road crematorium at 11.00 a.m. on Monday October 11th. Afterwards, friends and family are invited back to the Benwell Hill Cricket Club to continue the celebration of Albert's life. Donations to Myeloma UK; family flowers only please.
