Our club is broken. Our heart, our soul for so many years is no longer with us. We are absolutely devastated to announce the passing of much loved 1st Grade Manager and Life Member Michael “Juice” Shepheard suddenly yesterday. It’s news that has shocked the playing group, members of our club and the wider cricket community.
Juice was a friend to all. Whether at training, on game day with his beloved 1st Grade side, or having a quiet beer, he was someone that listened. His cricket intelligence was under rated by some, but not by our club’s 1st Grade captain. Speak to any of them… Glassock to Bradstreet, Cruickshank to Lenton… and they’ll tell you he knew the game better than anyone.
We still have not been able to comprehend what has happened. But Juice would want us all to continue, to love, to be loved, and to be kind. That is what he was.
Our sincerest condolences to his parents John and Pat and the entire family. We know how big a loss this is and we are here for you.
Funeral details will be advised soon.
Michael Shepheard – 1979-2022
