Graham Crimp MBE 14th April 2020


Cricket Wales is deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Graham Crimp MBE, this morning at the age of 91.  

Graham’s contribution to Cricket has been truly colossal and this was very much a long innings of dedication and service.   It is difficult to summarise Graham’s contribution to cricket in Wales let alone to sport in Wales in general. Graham was a very active member of cricket administration in Wales for many years and his roles have been many and varied.

Specifically, Graham was the first treasurer of the Cricket Board of Wales when it was set up in 1996 and served in that role for many years. Graham had however served for much longer before hand in terms of being a previous treasurer (25 years) and chairman of the Welsh Cricket Association as well as having been involved in leagues and Wales Minor Counties cricket administration. He also spent countless hours on the running of the game like administering the Welsh Cup   For over 50 years he was club secretary and more lately President in his hometown at Penarth CC. A previous captain, he fulfilled most roles required to run a club and Graham had worked them tirelessly.  

Graham was also captain of Penarth hockey and the Glamorganshire golf club. He was also secretary of the golf club.  Graham was very active as a board member on the Sports Council for Wales before it became Sport Wales as well as the Welsh Sports Association. There weren’t many administrative committees that Graham hadn’t served on at some stage!

We all come together to wish his wife Peggy, his sons Tony and Robert and their families our deepest condolences and to express greatest gratitude, thanks for all his service to Cricket in Wales.
