Mike Cox

Mike Cox, stalwart supporter of Old Surbs...

We are very sad to report the death of Mike Cox on 1st March 2008. He was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer earlier this year to which he succumbed very quickly.

Mike joined what was the Old Surbitonians Cricket Club in the early 70's although he wasn't an old boy of the school.  Mike was an attacking batsman, and occasional medium pace bowler. He never commanded a regular place in the 1st XI, but was a great club member and the life and soul of the party in the bar. He was responsible to a large extent for the good team spirit in our 2nd XI league team, and he always enjoyed our social Sunday fixtures.

Mike served as Secretary of the OId Surbitonian Association for several years and was an active participant in the running of the club.

Our condolences go out to his widow Sandra, and daughters, Michelle and Melissa.

His funeral will take place at Randalls Park Crematorium at 11.00am Thursday 13th March – no flowers please – donations to Princess Alice Hospice.
