David Hirst Retirement

Lowerhouse CC would like to wish David Hirst a happy retirement as he steps down as an umpire. David has been a significant contributor to cricket both as a player, administrator and umpire for well over half a century. Chairman Stan heaton recounts “Many including myself, have had the pleasure of playing with and against Hirsty as a player. He was a wily bowler and astute tactician. It was typical that he would take up umpiring and to put something back into the game . He was the thinking man’s cricketer and the thinking man’s umpire and great company on the field and in the bar. It was very pleasing to see David and beryl at the derby game at the weekend and we hope this becomes a habit. ”
Best wishes hirsty on your retirement from all at Lowerhouse CC
