Ian Pemberton RIP

18th August 2019 Posted in League and People by Michael Weeks
  • Cornwall Cricket is saddened to learn of the death of Ian Pemberton of Callington Cricket Club.Players stood for a minute’s silence yesterday at Moores Park ahead of the Callington seconds against Roche game. 

    For many years Ian ran the East Cornwall Youth Cricket League.


    Callington club secretary Lewis Bond has paid this tribute.

    It is with great sadness that Callington Cricket Club announces the death of Club Stalwart Ian Pemberton.

    “Pemby” as he was fondly known by us all, worked tirelessly for Callington CC over many decades, as a player, coach, youth coach/manager and Club Secretary.

    Many current and former cricketers have Pemby to thank for introducing them to the sport of cricket 20-30 years ago.

    He had only recently celebrated his 80th birthday with his family on July 5th.

    The funeral arrangements have not yet been decided, but will follow later.”

  • Update from Lewis
  • “In typical Pemby style, Ian had left instructions for his family, as to what he wanted done, after his passing.
    It was his express wish that there will be no funeral or memorial service. Just a private, family only cremation. His wish is that if anyone wants to do something in his memory, they should simply get involved in local cricket. That was Pemby in a nutshell – he always did what had to be done, but never sought thanks or recognition, and certainly no fuss.
    We are sure that all his friends and associates throughout the Cornish cricket family, and beyond, will understand and respect his wishes.”

    Nigel Sanders What a lovely man. He was an unbelievable servant to Cornwall Association of Cricket Coaches. His trade mark was his hand knitted scarf he wore when coaching to keep his neck warm, RIP my friend, Cornish Cricket is a poorer place without you.
  • Peter Grant A great ambassador of cricket in Cornwall. His input was significant.
    RIP Ian.
  • Stephen Rowe Sorry to hear the news, a gentleman of the game and always had time to talk to everyone. Condolences to his family and Callington CC. From all at St. Neot Taverners CC
  • Edward Leverton So sorry to hear this news. Ian was a great servant to cricket RIP my friend
