Bill Patterson 1930-2014

Bill Patterson's funeral was held today and a full church heard many moving words about him. 
From his early days facing Freddie Truman when he played for Hull University against Yorkshire CC to his final days with his family and beloved dogs.

Budge A, Maynard R,  Rasor P, Shepherd D, Malcolm Stayton, Derek Akers and Pat, Masters K&P, Hoffman M, Gibson C, Peaty N, Kiss S. were amongst the mourners.

Here are a few photos from Bill in 2007. If you want to watch him giving a speech to the assembled throng at the old school have a look here
