David Sprigg

It is with deep sadness that we have learnt that David lost his battle with cancer on the 14th July. David was a larger than life character always there to support and help anyone who needed it, and encouraging them no matter what their ability was to get an average and to enter competitions, whether they were Club, County or National ones.  He was the force behind the new clubhouse and air range, and without him we would not have the facilities that we all enjoy.  He will be deeply missed by everybody.
