from Graham's Widow, Eira in 2017

Newport CC will host Panteg in the final Graham Reynold's Memorial Match on Sunday, April 15th, 2018
at Spytty Park (NISV). The two clubs have played annually for 'The Graham Reynold's Memorial Trophy'
and the final match between the two teams will mark the 10th Anniversary of Graham's death.

The two clubs, along with Graham's widow Eira and the families, have agreed that the
10th Anniversary match would be a fitting finale to honour Graham's services to both clubs.

Graham spent a lifetime playing for Newport, whilst also being a regular watcher of
games at Panteg, where he had many friends.

Newport Cricket Club and the family are hoping that friends and colleagues of Graham
will attend the day and pay a fitting final tribute.

Newport Cricket Club Chairman Mike Knight commented, 'We all have special memories of Graham and
he will never be forgotten at Newport Cricket Club. It would
be a great finale to see a good turnout of friends
to share their stories and memories of Graham.'
