WILLIAM MEURIG (W. M.) LLOYD

Date: 7th October 2018

Bill Lloyd leaves the crease.

It is with much sadness that the death is announced, at the age of 74, of Colwyn Bay CC stalwart William Meurig (W. M.) Lloyd known to all in the cricketing fraternity as Bill.

He joined Colwyn Bay CC at the age of 10 and had been a member ever since, progressing through to the senior teams in his mid-teens.  He was a bowler of prodigious in-swingers and had the distinction of being one of only three in the club’s history to have taken all 10 - against St Asaph in August 1977.  He captained the 2nd XI for a number of years before injury forced his retirement.  He then took up umpiring as 2nd XI umpire for approximately 30 years, gaining a well-deserved reputation for impartiality and the accuracy of his decision-making.  He also served on the club’s management committee.

After retiring from umpiring a few years ago, he joined the group of elderly aficionados who congregate on the benches at the Penrhyn Avenue end and by whom he will be very much missed.
