Everyone at Essex County Cricket Club has expressed regret over the news regarding David English.
It is tough to overstate The Loon’s dedication to cricket, and ever since the first Bunbury Festival took place 35 years ago, many of the young players who attended have gone on to play for Essex.
Alastair Cook, whom English himself referred to as “the greatest Bunbarian of them all,” is perhaps none more so.
I’m heartbroken to learn about David English’s passing. He was a brilliant individual who made a significant contribution to English cricket during his life.
When I was recently with him, he was terrific company as always.
May you find peace, David. More than you could have ever thought, you have done for people. An excellent gentleman and fantastic friend.
