DAVID ALLEN 1935-2014 - 2nd of June 2014

It is with deep sadness and regret that TCC have to report the passing of their club President, David Allen.

D.A., as affectionately known by virtually everyone, passed away in the early hours of Saturday 24th May following a battle with cancer.

During an illustrious playing career, D.A. earned 39 Test Caps for England (122 wickets) and played for Gloucestershire CCC for almost 20 years racking up over 9,000 first class runs and over 1,200 wickets with his demon off breaks.

However it was more off the field that he had a profound and lasting effect on TCC with a coaching, mentoring and leadership role that has seen the club develop and flourish over the past 20 years whilst still maintaining the Thornbury "spirit" (usually Bells in D.A.'s case !!).

During his latter years D.A. was both TCC and Gloucestershire CC Club President, positions that he took in his stride with consummate ease with no little help from the respect of all associated with the game of cricket and beyond.

Needless to say he will be extremely missed by the vast network of his friends and TCC passes their heartfelt condolences to Joyce, Mark, Tracey and the rest of the Allen family.

Minute silences were conducted at the Thornbury fixtures over the weekend (photos in the gallery of this website) and please click below for the funeral arrangements.......
