Over many years, Kath supported her husband Cliff in his playing days and later the huge administrative burden that he handled so professionally. A vivacious lady who was a staunch member of Leeds City Council Leisure Services Department and acted as City tour guide in retirement.

 

Her funeral is on 30th January. Further details from our President.

Ronnie Ambler - January 2020

With the death of Ronnie Ambler we are robbed of a fine gentleman and one of the last links of the old Pudsey Britannia Cricket Club.

 

Sadly this news has just reached me. In a few conversations with me, he recalled many of his cricketing exploits especially during his military service. Ronnie played in the era of the legendary Herbert Sutcliffe and was a great friend of his son William Herbert Hobbs Sutcliffe (Bill)

There where many invitations for Bill to play cricket around the country and he always insisted that Ronnie was invited also to play, which meant they had a whale of a time.


Ronnie was a fine figure of a man even as he turned 90 years visiting his old ground for a Sunday lunchtime drink and I also understand he was a very fine bowler.

 

He was certainly part of Pudsey's rich cricketing heritage.
