Cricket community mourns loss of Ian 'Tomo' Tomlinson

Minutes silence/celebration to be held before matches

Tributes have been pouring in from the Island's cricket community after the loss of one of its long-standing players and volunteers.

Ian Tomlinson has sadly passed away.

He's been described as a true gentleman, generous and 'enormously influential' in the sport.

In his memory, a minute's silence or a minute celebration will be held before matches at the weekend.

There are also plans to honour his memory in the long term with either the MCC or Mersey Commonwealth Touring Side who come across every year that Tomo initiated back in 2003.

Local cricket enthusiast Ollie Helfich paid his respects:
