Leicestershire CCC is sad to learn of the passing of former first and second XI scorer Geoff Blackburn.
Geoff gave loyal service to Leicestershire CCC by scoring for the first team between 1985 and 1994, before swapping roles with Graham York and becoming second team scorer in 1995.
Geoff, who was also vice president of the Leicester Railway Society, still came to Grace Road to watch the team after he retired.
He will be missed by all of his friends at Leicestershire CCC. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
