Very sad news. He was a great person to talk to when over there playing for the club. Also a genius at Countdown! 💙

Terribly sad to hear this news Boonie was just a top top human being. Been very lucky enough to have created some great memories and had some brilliant times in his company. RIP Boonie, thoughts to all that were close to Blair and his family 😪


Rob Cook


Really sorry to hear this, please pass on our regards to the family


Matthew Nicholls

So sad to hear this news. Such a top man who loved cricket. Had the privilege of playing for his The Slaughtered Lamb side in the pub 6 aside and spent many a Friday night playing darts down St Buryan. Will be missed. RIP


Carl Gazzard

Such sad news. Blair always offered help and advice on the pitch and off. RIP Boony 😞 😢

Really sad news. A cracking chap. RIP Blair.


Paul Berryman

Very sad to hear this. Blair was just a top bloke on and off the field. RIP my friend. Burz


Gareth May


So sorry and sad to hear this. From Crusaders Cricket to local derbys versus St Buryan and then in the same darts team always great company and top top man. Thoughts with friends and family 😪


Tim Boston

That is very sad news, was very supportive when I started umpiring and was always held in such high esteem by players, colleagues and spectators.


Simon Menneer

I can only echo Tim's words: as a rookie umpire he gave me so much support and confidence. An outstanding bloke and all.


Graham Trenwith

Very sad to hear, played many games with Blair both at St Just and the Cornish Crusaders, R.I.P mate


Steve Raven

Awful news. Popular and well respected. Will be missed.


Lee Penrose

Was a great bloke. Enjoyed many a chat with Blair about many different things. Always asked how I was getting on even when I left the club if I saw him. Top chap!


Andrew Loutit

Very sad news. But I’ve only happy memories, even though it was now a long time ago.


Edward Nicolson

Very sad to hear this. Played against him for St Austell and with him for the Crusaders and he was a lovely sociable man. RIP
