Netherfield Cricket Club are sad to report the passing of David Armitage. I have known David for over 40 years, played with him, won things with him and drunk Coke with him. He was a great servant to the club, latterly as an umpire both for club, and the Northern & Westmorland Leagues and as the Club’s Safeguarding Officer.
He was also heavily involved with the Hockey world locally with Ambleside and Kendal Hockey Clubs after a spell as a National umpire and formerly as a player.
Over recent years David has suffered a lot of illness which has handicapped his sporting involvement but only a couple of weeks ago he told me he was hoping to get back to work on reduced hours. So I am very sad tonight to lose a good friend. RIP Tick
