News of Brent Wilkinson

Andrew Reynolds Latest News & Information

We are sorry to bring you the very sad news that Brent Wilkinson passed away earlier this week after a brave battle with illness.

Brent has served Bramhall Cricket Club exceptionally well over the past quarter century, including as 1st XI captain, U17 manager and a key committee member. Brent was subsequently made an Honorary Vice President and was more recently Chair of the weekly Selection Committee before ill health forced him to step down. Brent and wife Liz have also been extremely loyal supporters of the 1st XI, primarily following son Simon in action, both home and away.

In addition to Bramhall, Brent had also served the Cheshire County Cricket League, using his wealth of knowledge in accountancy.

We’re sure you will join us in passing on our sympathies and best wishes to Liz, Simon, daughters Melanie and Sarah and to his brother David – all of whom retain ties to our club.

Brent’s funeral will be on Tuesday 14th January at 12.15pm, at St. Michael’s Church, Robins Lane in Bramhall. A function then follows at Stanneylands Hotel in Wilmslow. All welcome, with Bramhall CC ties encouraged. Family flowers only please but donation to Cancer Research UK are appreciated. Please contact a family member if you’re planning to attend to help plan catering.
