Berkshire County Cricket Club are very saddened to hear of the passing of Paul Bradbury. He died on Sunday (July 21) at the age of 79.
He was our membership secretary and a great supporter of the club, attending matches home and away.
Berkshire director of cricket and close friend Danny Hall said: "Paul was an incredible stoical character and tremendously brave. He had been ill for a long time, but you never heard him complain.
"He was very proud of the team's performance and how they conducted themselves on and off the field."
'Bradders' played for Henley and was held the role of club chairman for many years.
Henley CC said they have been left "devasted" by the incredibly sad news, adding: "He was a huge driving force in the club. He will be sorely missed by all. Our thoughts are with his wife, family and all his grandchildren."
He played his early cricket in Cheshire before moving south and played for Horsham.
He is survived by wife Gay, another loyal Berkshire supporter, sons Richard and Nick, and daughter Rachel.
Last Thursday, Paul and Gay attended the funeral service of former umpire David Burden.
The Berkshire and Cheshire teams held a minute's silence before play started at Finchampstead today. Players also wore black armbands.
