A memorial cricket match and family fun-day for former Walsall Health skipper Tim Oliver will be taking place this Sunday at Rushall Cricket Club.
Two clubs which Tim held close to his heart – Walsall Health and Rushall – will be taking part in the game which will include many of his former team mates from down the years, as well as current players.
Tim – who was leader of the Labour group on Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council – died in May after a long battle with illness.
The game at Rushall’s Carter Park home in Pelsall Lane will start at 2pm with a BBQ and a disco and karaoke afterwards. A raffle – with prizes including a pair of tickets to any Midlands football match, a Harvey Nicholl’s hamper and a whole host of is currently underway and charities which will benefit from the event include Pancreatic Cancer UK, Macmillan Nurses and Amnesty International.
The match ball is being sponsored by Firesec Electrical Limited and local business Katie’s Castles has helped us out with a bouncy castle to keep the kids entertained.
A multiple record holder for The Elf, Tim started playing for the club in the late 80s and soon took over as skipper, continuing to play right up until 2012.
