GCCC mourn death of David 'Teddy' Thomas
It is with great sadness that Gloucestershire County Cricket Club report the passing of David 'Teddy' Thomas after a long and brave battle with Multiple Sclerosis.
Andy Brassington, a former playing colleague of David's at Gloucestershire, paid the following tribute to him.
He said: "The passing of David 'Teddy' Thomas is deeply sad to all who had the pleasure to have played with him or against him, to all of the cricket lovers who watched him bat and bowl with such pride, passion and talent and all those supporters who have enjoyed his company and endless stories over a beer at the close of play at the many bars he graced up and down the country over the years.
"It speaks volumes about the character of Teddy that while suffering from this terrible illness he spent endless time raising funds and awareness for the Multiple Sclerosis charity and all with a smile on his face.
"On behalf of all your former colleagues and friends at Gloucestershire thanks 'Teddy' for all the fun and laughter we shared together, you will be greatly missed by all of your family at Gloucestershire, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family."
David played first-class cricket for Surrey and Gloucestershire between 1977 and 1988.
The Funeral will be held at 11am on 15th August at
