John Alberquerque Obituary, Death – The passing of John Alberquerque, who had been a part of the Alvanley Cricket Club for a significant amount of time, has caused the club to be in a state of profound sadness. John was famous first and foremost for his love of the game of cricket, as well as for his love and excitement for our club and the manner in which he played the game of cricket. He was also renowned for the method in which he played the game of cricket. John was a devoted follower of the competition.
As a batter, John will be remembered for a wonderful hundred he struck against Widnes in the second XI and for his unceasing passion as the captain of the third XI. Both of these achievements helped John earn a place in the annals of batting greatness. In recent years, John has spent nearly every weekend throughout the summer months at the stadium, working out with many of our club’s younger members and teaching his knowledge of the game along with his deep love and excitement for it. In addition, John has a tremendous love and enthusiasm for the game.
As a club, we are mourning the death of a guy who played cricket with a smile on his face at all times and exemplified the genuine spirit of the sport. He will be greatly missed. This evening, our hearts are heavy with sorrow, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to meet John. During this challenging time, we want Annette, Ben, and John’s family to know that our thoughts and prayers are with them. RIP John.
