Well-respected Cricket Umpire Remembered

​Cricketers paid tribute to a much-loved former umpire recently.  Very sadly, Ken Goult passed away having umpired all levels of cricket for over thirty five years, including the Chigwell School 1st XI.  He was very well-respected and a key part of Chigwell cricket.  Before the 1st XI fixture against Bishops Stortford College, Master in Charge of Cricket, Mr Frank Griffith, paid tribute to Ken and players from both sides remembered him during a minute’s silence.  Speaking about him, Mr Griffith commented, “It is very sad that we have lost Ken, but we need to remember the good times we had with him.  He was a great umpire and a true gentleman.”  Chigwell went on to win the game.
