Latest news of Errol Valentine

Dear All,

As I believe all are aware, Errol Valentine has been very unwell. He suffered a stroke in July and has been in the Princess Royal University Hospital in Farnborough receiving treatment since then. I regret that he has not responded as well as one would have hoped and the future at the moment is bleak. It is highly unlikely that he will be able to return home to care for himself and he is going to have to take up a place in a Residential Home and to receive such care for the rest of his life.

Errol has worked tirelessly for the League for longer than any of us can remember and I am setting up a fund to receive donations as a mark of our enormous gratitude to him and to help in his future care.

I do hope that all our Clubs will feel able to contribute generously. Payments should be made in favour of The Kent Cricket League sort code 60-02-12 account number 54067456. When making a payment please email the League Treasurer Andy Marshall on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to confirm the payment so that he can clearly identify it upon receipt.

I am extremely grateful to all in anticipation of your assistance.

Tony Bentley, Chairman
