Steve Patten-Hall- we now have details of Steve's funeral.It's at 1130 on Tues 2nd Dec at Semington Crematorium followed by the wake at Devizes Sports Club.It would be great to see as many members there as is humanly possible to show our appreciation for Steve and all he did for our club
Steve Patten-Hall- it is with the utmost sadness that we have to announce that Steve passed away last night.Steve had been an absolutely integral part of the rise of the club over the last few years with both his junior coaching and his captaincy of the 4th X1 from when it was set up to 2 consecutive promotions.Both his children,James and Emily,are juniors at our club and Steve absolutely adored PCC. He was a top bloke who will be hugely missed by all at the club.It's an overused phrase but this really is a tragic loss,especially for his family-our thoughts are with you Abi,James and Emily. RIP SPH
