Gordon Ellsey Obituary, Death – As a result of the tragic news regarding the passing of “Gordon Ellsey,” a longtime member of our club who was also a legend in his own right, we are feeling upset and sorrowful. In the early part of this week, Gordon, who had been struggling with illness for a relatively brief amount of time, passed away. In his playing days, Gordon was a quality opening bat who also bowled a bit and had a safe pair of hands in the grabbers, which is where he took his last catch when he was in his seventies. In addition, Gordon had a bit of an all-around game, since he also had a good pair of hands in the field. Additionally, Gordon possessed a bit of an all-around game due to the fact that he was equipped with a solid set of hands in the field.
Gordon was a dedicated member of the Albrighton Cricket Club for well over half a century. His tenure there spanned the entirety of the 20th century.Gordon was a beloved figure in the club’s community, and whenever tea was being served, he had an uncanny ability to make his way to the front of the line. This was one of the many reasons the club was so successful. Gordon was our most devoted supporter, and he did not miss a single one of our matches, regardless of whether or not they were played at our stadium or in another location. In the event that you did not pick up Gordon when he was waiting for you, you should be prepared to get a call from him on the phone.
Gordon will be eternally grateful to the clubs in and around Shropshire that made him feel at home and took care of him while he was on their grounds in his later years. He treasured the time he spent away from home and will be forever grateful to those clubs. These clubs greeted him with open arms and made sure he was well taken care of while he was in town. When Gordon passes away, there is no question that he will be sorely missed by everyone in the world of cricket. Gordon cherished recalling the wonderful times he spent at the Yorkshire or Albrighton Cricket Club, and he often spoke about these clubs. A gentleman who is skilled in the art of playing the game and knows how to do it well. Everyone at the Albrighton Cricket Club is keeping his family and all of his close friends in their thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time.
