A Club legend.


Sadly, as many of you will be aware, Ian "Raving Ron" Greenwood passed away recently.

Paul Nicholls has penned a few words in his memory:

He joined Enfield CC in 1986 - was totally cricket potty and played in any XI that had a game. He was an integral part of the successful 3rd XI for 18 years as both a hard hitting top order player and a cunning off spinner. He was one of life's true eccentrics and soon gained the name "Raving Ron" or the "Major" which stuck with him forever. Ian was very well read on all aspects of life. He was a massive cricket collector of books and an expert on cricket history. He went on the club Tour to Blackpool in the late 1980's and the 150th Tour to Bournemouth Tour in 2001.

Towards the end of the 2000s, he left the club to go back to play nearer where he had moved to in Essex. He played into his early 70's and appeared in the vets match at Enfield CC last September. His friends will remember him as true one-off and I spent many many games in his company and he was a true friend to me.
