Barry Harrison

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Barry Harrison.

Barry Harrison was quite simply the essence of a great club man.

Third on the all time list of first team appearances (432) he represented Waringstown 1st XI for thirty years between 1967 and 1998.

He scored 3313 runs and took 237 catches and 37 stumpings.

Most will not realise the number of senior league and cup medals he won during that period, quietly accumulated in a wonderful team he was immensely proud to be part of.

When he stopped playing for the 1sts he continued to play for the 2nds and 3rds, coached the under age teams, and right up until illness intervened assisted with looking after The Lawn and the pavilion.

In later years he was a massive supporter of all the teams and greatly enjoyed coming to watch his two sons, Simon & Mark, as they progressed through the ranks, and more recently his granddaughter Abbi as she too has carried on the family tradition.

To Sandra, Mark, Julie, Simon and the family circle our heartfelt condolences, and to Barry, our thanks for your contribution on and off the field over the last sixty years. You will be greatly missed.
