A Fitting Tribute to Henry “Owen” Budd

In tribute to Owen Budd new benches are to be installed at Singleton Cricket Club. Along with a club contribution, the family of Owen chose to donate from the generous villagers collection benches as a fitting and lasting memory.

Owen was a special life member to the club where he had been our cricket club scorer for more than 40 years. Seated in the score box, keeping his full concentration on the game. Owen showed true commitment to the club and a passionate love of the game. I personally enjoyed a post game conversation with Owen sharing his views about the day’s performance, over the occasional glass of sherry at the club bar.

Come down next season when the club resumes play for 2021, sit on the benches at the site of the old score box and enjoy the views or watch a game.
