Remembering Bob Lewis

Members of Christleton Sports Club are very sorry to hear of the recent passing of our friend Bob Lewis.

Bob began his association with our club back in the mid 1960s. This era may now be somewhat shrouded by the mists of time but fellow players and spectators remember clearly Bob’s immense contributions to Christleton Football Club.

At the time, football in this country was enjoying a surge in growth and interest on the back of the national team’s legendary 1966 World Cup win. Christleton Football Club caught the mood of the time enjoying one of its most successful and productive seasons, the club’s first in the West Cheshire League, then a highly physical and fiercely competitive competition. The club swept to a promotion from Division 2 in 1966-67 scoring over 150 goals in the process. By far the biggest contributor was Bob with a season tally of over 60 goals. Those who saw him play remember a hard-working centre forward with an eye for a goal, with good anticipation and fast movement, able to finish accurately with either foot and with his head.

Over six seasons the club enjoyed some of its most prosperous times with high placed finishes in Division 1 and many cup successes including the prestigious Pyke Cup. In 1969-70 the club won the Division 1 title, the holy grail of amateur football in this region at that time. Again, Bob’s goals were at the fore. Records from these years are sketchy but eyewitnesses can’t remember a bad match from Bob, let alone a poor season. Readers will be able to work out the likely goal tally for themselves. Bob played out the sunset of his footballing career at our friends and neighbours Chester Nomads.

Bob re-emerged at our club in the 1990s and this time he demonstrated his cricketing abilities. Bob played for our 2nd team and was a skilled performer with both bat and ball. In bowling, Bob was a canny medium pacer who would probe away and wear batsmen down with his consistency. When batting, Bob liked to bat around number 5. He was steady, looking for scoring opportunities and rarely giving his wicket up easily. He was 2nd team captain in 1995.

Bob’s commitment to the club was not just felt on fields of play. He was cricket club Treasurer from 1996-1999 and was main Sports Club Treasurer to boot. Whilst he felt at home both in a penalty area and on a cricket pitch, the world of figures really was his domain. He was a most stringent and exacting money-minder. The whole Sports Club has much to thank Bob for both on and off the pitch.

Whatever sport Bob was playing, he was competitive and liked to win. Off the field, he was the most genial chap you could ever wish to meet, with a ready wit and dry sense of humour.

All at our Sports Club send the most heartfelt condolences to Bob’s family.

Bob’s funeral will take place on Tuesday 13th September at 2pm at St John’s Church in Ashton Hayes. Those in attendance are encouraged to wear a splash of red and white.

Sad News – RIP Tom Dewhurst


Christleton Cricket Club is saddened to announce the passing of Tom Dewhurst, a former player, officer and a Vice President of the club.

Tom was a Cambridge geography graduate and took full advantage of the opportunities to play sport whilst at University.  He represented his University at both football and cricket and his finest sporting moment at this time came when he claimed the wicket of England cricket legend Denis Compton, one of the few England batsmen to post a career test average of over 50.  Tom then played both football and cricket at high standards in the Lancashire leagues.

Tom moved to Chester in the 1950s to take up the post of Head of Geography at the old City Grammar School.  Tom played 1st XI Cricket for our neighbours Chester Boughton Hall for over 10 years in the Liverpool Competition, then a fiercely competitive league.  The wickets of the 50s and 60s were uncovered and much more unreliable than today’s surfaces.  Centuries were few and far between and so Tom’s excellent hundred at St Helens remains well remembered even to this day.

After not playing for several years Tom joined us and played for 7 seasons.  He is remembered as a stylish batsman, as a wily, smooth-actioned swing bowler and also as a safe pair of hands in the slips.  Tom took on the responsibility of being the club’s bar treasurer.  Above all, he is remembered as a friendly, cheerful chap.

When Tom finished playing, he became a Vice President of the cricket club and we know how much he used to look forward to receiving his fixture book and the prospect of another summer of cricket.

Tom’s visits to the club became fewer as he passed 90 and his health deteriorated.  When one of Tom’s occasional visits did take place, it was always good to see him, an affable, friendly man who had made such a huge contribution to the sports he loved.  Our condolences and very best wishes go out to his wife Pat and to Tom’s wider family.

Tom’s funeral will take place on Friday 18th March 2022 at 12 noon at Blacon Crematorium.

Sad news – Peter Dutton

A few days ago, our Chairman was privileged to represent the club at the funeral of our esteemed Vice-President Peter Dutton.  Peter was simply a lovely chap, very easy to spend time with, always ready with a quip, and a great storyteller. Peter’s funeral was a tribute to a long and rich life of almost 91 years. A proud Cestrian born and bred, a King’s scholar and a former Chester City F.C. goalkeeper, Peter’s professional and sporting achievements were many and varied. Most cricketers will remember Peter as a cricket umpire. Respected, unflappable and cool under pressure, Peter was widely acknowledged as one of the foremost umpires on the circuit. That he never gave the Chairman out LBW is further testimony to his impeccable judgement. Many at Little Heath will know Peter’s son Ian (Dutts) who is a staunch current Vice-President as well as a former player. Our sincere best wishes go out to the whole Dutton family for their loss- Peter’s cheerful presence is one that we will all miss at Little Heath.
