Derek Clements Funeral Date

4th August 2018 Posted in League and People by Michael Weeks

Derek Clements RIP

The date for Derek Clements funeral is the Friday the 17th of August at St Mary, Magdalene Church, Launceston, at mid-day. 


It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of our sad loss at South Petherwin Cricket Club of club Chairman Mr Derek Clements (aged 72)

Derek passed away on Wednesday morning in Derriford hospital in Plymouth, he was admitted into hospital two weeks ago with a lung condition, unfortunately, there wasn’t a cure and the illness progressively worsened.

It goes without saying that Derek will be sadly missed by his family and his extended family at South Petherwin CC, he was an ever-present at the club for over 35 years, serving as a player, (last game 23rd June 2018 ) first & second team captain and Chairman, with his wife Jean he also successfully made numerous funding applications and organised fundraising.

He was so proud of the improvements to the playing facility and playing surfaces at the Penfoot field, he took great pride in his wicket preparation. The void that he has left will take some filling.

The thoughts of Cornwall Cricket are with Derek’s family and South Petherwin CC at this sad time.

He was always a gentleman to deal with and a great servant of South Petherwin CC
