To those older members of the League, I have just received the sad news that Tom Hales ex President and one of the founder members of the League died on Thursday 17th April. He had been suffering from Leukemia and his long term partner Linda Hales n'ee Barrow phoned to tell me the news. Tom was a stalwart of the league for as long as I can remember and was going to be invited to our 50th anniversary D&D but sadly won't be making it. Those who remember Tom will know that he played for Burnham Sports with Robin Tucker [ex chairman] and Dick Chamberlain [known as Tom, Dick and Harry]  Tom was President of the league from 1974 - 1998 and previously had held just about every other position on the League committee.
He also played at various times for Latchingdon and Burnham Sailing Club, all club names sadly from the past.  He may be remembered by some older players for his comments of "Lucky" when you played a good shot or "There's nothing on it" when the ball hit his bat followed by the wall.
Tom did almost a lifetime of work for the Burnham league and will be remembered by many.
RIP Tom.   Dave Goody
