Karl Buckley

Sad news to report, as long time member Karl Buckley has sadly passed away.

Karl became a regular fixture at the club in the mid 2000’s when brother-in-law, Dexter Fitton took over as head junior coach. Both Karl’s sons, Matt and Dan, came through the junior ranks and went on to play 1st XI cricket for the club with uncle Dexter as 1st XI captain.

Karl was a great man. Firm, but fair. He had a great sense of humour and was generous with his time. As the owner of Corletts garage, where he worked for the best part of 40 years, he was well known in the village. Karl was also a well known figure down at Rochdale St Clements FC.

He will be sadly missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.

Our love and thoughts go out to Helen, Matt and Dan at this difficult time.
