The death of Lurgan and NCU stalwart Billy Boyd has been announced.

A lifelong member and current Chairman of Lurgan Rugby Football and Cricket Club Billy served the Northern Cricket Union as both Chairman in 2006-2007 and as President in 2014-2015.

His involvement with cricket extended beyond the confines of his home club and Union and he chaired the Northern Ireland Cricket Association supporting cricket across the whole of the province.

A familiar face at Ireland fixtures across the island his organisational skills meant that he was invariably asked to be match manager of Ireland's games at Stormont on behalf of Cricket Ireland.

A Funeral Service will be held in Holy Trinity Parish Church, Waringstown, on Sunday 10th March at 3.00pm followed by interment in the adjoining Churchyard.

All at CricketEurope pass on their condolences to his wife Sandra, children Jonny and Janine and all the family circle.
