JOAN MAYCOCK AND BOBBY WEBSTER, Wallasey lose two great club stalwarts.

Date: 7th December 2020

They will both be sadly missed by family and friends.

Joan Maycock

Joan became a member of the Club along with her husband Bill in 1949 and as a result was our longest serving member.

Joan was the mainstay of the social side of the club in the 1960s and 70s preparing teas and working on the Ladies (social) committee to great effect and will be fondly remembered for organising a host of social events that kept the club prospering in times of hardship.

Joan worked tirelessly alongside Bill during his tenure as President and was made the first lady life member in 1981.

Joan took great pleasure watching sons Brian and Roger plying their trade out on the pitch on a Saturday afternoon.

Joan died peacefully at home aged 94.

Robert (Bobby) Webster

Bobby was one of the longest serving members of the club having joined as a junior in the1950's. He was a dogged early order batsman playing in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, mainly in the 2nd XI but also had several spells in the 1st XI and an uncanny ability to guide almost any delivery along the ground to fine leg or third man. He was also an occasional purveyor of slow medium “dibbly dobblies”!

His sense of humour and wit were loved by all.

Bobby made a telling contribution to the club both on and off the field, always quick to help junior players and guided several youngsters through into the 1st XI. After his retirement, Bobby was a regular match day visitor to the Oval and enjoyed watching games in his own quiet way.

He died peacefully after a long fight with dementia.
