Dick Hespe

Dick Hespe – Father of John, died last week. A keen supporter since his brother Peter played in our YL side in the 1960s and more so following John all the way to Lord’s in 2000 and actually watching one match this Season. Very good company he will be missed by many Collegiate members. Our sympathies to John and family

Dick’s funeral will be at Our Lady & St Thomas of Canterbury, 34 Meadowhead, S8 7UD (on Chesterfield Rd just above the junction with Abbey Lane) at 10.00 on Thurs 28th May and afterwards at the De La Salle Cricket Club at Beauchief Hall.

    Dick always took an interest in how the Old Edwardians were doing when playing at Abbeydale or De La Salle – his support was much appreciated.

    Again very sad news.

    Dick was a true gentleman, always encouraging. He made time to take an interest in me as a new club member in 1989 and helped make me feel very welcome.
