TERRY Holloway, the chairman of The Mote Cricket Club, died in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Mr Holloway was born in Liverpool, where he played both cricket and football to a high amateur standard, but he moved to Maidstone and joined The Mote in 1973.

He was elected chairman in 1996 after being a playing member for more than two decades.

In his first year, the Ladies Section and the Kent Cricket Board (KCB) were established and he oversaw the reintroduction of the Colts Section in 1997.

Both the Colts Section and the Ladies Section have thrived under his leadership.

He steered the club through the changes introduced by the KCB, paricularly to the league structure, and was rewarded when The Mote won the Kent League title in 1999. Two years later they finished runners-up.

He has worked hard to forge the foundations for the proposed creation of a centre of excellence for cricket at The Mote within a multi-sports complex also to include rugby, squash and tennis.

A service will be held at St Peters Catholic Church, Button Lane, Bearsted, at 1pm on Monday, October 10.

The family are not requesting flowers but those wishing to do so can make a donation to International Myeloma Foundation UK, Lower Ground Floor 37 York Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3HP, or online at www.myeloma.org.uk.
