Tribute from Liverpool Competition

Following the sad news below from Liverpool Cricket Club - A brief tribute from Chairman John Williams on behalf of the Liverpool Competition.

"It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of David Dunkley.

David represented Liverpool CC in many roles, alongside his longstanding committee positions at Lancashire CCC .

He was an extremely popular and respected member of the wider cricketing community.

All of our thoughts are with David's family at this time"


“David was a lifelong friend of the Liverpool Competition and during his playing, supporting and watching cricket days at Liverpool he made many friends.

Known to the current generation as “The Cricket Ball Man” he organised, purchased and delivered the balls to clubs on behalf of the Comp, for which those running the League were ever grateful. Poignantly, his support for local cricket was recognised earlier this year when he was made a Vice President of the Liverpool Competition at the January AGM.

David loved cricket, he worked hard in many ways for the game giving his time to the County Club as Grounds Chairman and to his beloved Liverpool wherever he was needed.  He was never short of a word or two and always loved to chat about the game. Personally, I will always be grateful for the support he gave me during my time in the Comp and like all his friends and colleagues will miss him greatly. Our thoughts and prayers are with Louise and his family”


 And a tribute from our President  Charlie O' Mahony

"So sorry to hear of David's death.


He was a friend of many years.  A pillar of local cricket, a true Lancastrian, a fine player and a gentleman. 


David and I had a special bond as our wives delivered us two beautiful babies on the same day, in the same hospital. 


Our condolences to Michael, Louise, Phil and all the family. 


Rest in peace".
