A talented, fiercely loyal and focused player, Eugene was quickly picked for home cricket clubs Carew and Pembrokeshire before leaving Wales to start university in Crewe where he was chosen to play university rugby as well as cricket.
He continued cricketing in teams throughout Cheshire and represented the Shropshire County League in representative cricket appearing regularly in touring games and Sunday leagues. He finally settled in Shropshire and represented Shelton CC for 10 years.
2019 saw Shelton win the Shropshire County Cricket League Division 1, but it was also to be his last year of playing the game he loved so much.
The trustees want to make sure that his legacy of kindness and positivity lives on by offering others the same opportunities and experiences that were offered to him all those years ago.
