Everyone at West is saddened to hear of the death of our former player Fred Bonsall this morning.
Fred played a huge part in the club's success in the mid 70s and played in front of some of the largest crowds we have ever seen at Windsor Park which led to our first Lancashire Knockout Cup win at Old Trafford, Fred played with us for several years and was a great team mate and a real tough opponent for every team we played.
Our condolences go out to Sheila, Paul, Clare and all the family at this time and also to all his old team mates at West, Flowery Field CC and Bredbury St Marks CC where Fred played so much great cricket and is a legend at all three clubs.
