  1. I attended st Joe’s from 1982 onwards when Aub was the grounds man. Aub always produced quality cricket wickets and I was fortunate to play in the same team as former test player Dominic Cork. Many years later we reminisced about that’s where our cricket careers took off and Aub played a part in his care and devotion he showed in his craft down the playing fields. A lovely chap, always cheerful, and quite simply I’m glad I knew him. RIP Aub.

  2. I have such fond memories of Aubrey – he was staple on our games lessons on a Wednesday and the games on a Saturday – an absolute true gent – and what a groundsman!! RIPS AUBS
