Statement from Richard Feist, club chairman
It is with great regret that I need to let you all know of the
sad passing of Mark Wicks.
Mark has been a great asset to the club over the past few
years. He has pushed the girls and ladies section at the club,
which has gone from strength to strength.
For those who don't know Mark, he was always to be seen on a
Friday night first of all helping with coaching the now under 13
team and also the girls. He had a great reputation with the kids in
both teams who could look up to him, not only in his height but
because of the way he helped them and the way he treated
Secondly you would find Mark enjoying a well earnt drink (or
five) in his corner of the patio. He would always be smiling, which
with everything he has gone through is amazing.
I would like to thank Mark for teaching me to always live life
to the full and be grateful for everything and to never stop
pushing for what you want and to work hard.
Lastly I wish to thank him, from all of the juniors who he has
helped and members he has made smile.
I wish the family the best and will keep working to make sure
Mark's dream of a strong ladies/girls side at Merstham thrives and
keeps him smiling.
Our thoughts are with Mark's family who we will still see at
Merstham for hopefully years to come.
Chairman, Merstham Cricket Club
