The members and committee of the Leicestershire Cricket Society are saddened to learn of the passing of “BIG PHIL” Wright.
Through the years, we have greatly appreciated what Phil did for the society.
Both in the warmth of his welcome and in the meticulous preparation of the Charles Palmer suite, for our meetings.
We have been extremely grateful for all his willingness and efficient contributions to the LCS.
We shall all miss him greatly.

The Society was formed in the summer of 2002 and held its first meeting in November of that year.
The inaugural speaker was appropriately enough Jack Birkenshaw who had achieved so much for Leicestershire both on and off the field.
The audience numbered around 70 and in all our subsequent meetings, usually held at the County Ground, Grace Road, we have maintained a healthy attendance of 60+.
Other speakers in our first season included John Holder, Derek Randall and Alan Hill.
There was a Grand Charity Evening on 11th October 2006 - click here for a brief report
Membership now numbers 164 with annual subscriptions being £20.
