Dick Watts of Taunton died suddenly on Thursday 8th December 2005. A great shock to his wife Betty and to all those who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Dick was a well known figure around the Somerset County Cricket Ground. A cashier, scorer and latterly a programme seller Dick was a very well known supporter of his County team. A bit difficult to define which was his greatest love, his billiards or his cricket? We certainly know that one of the proudest moments of his life was when he was chosen to represent England at billiards in the 1997 Friendly Cup match at Kings Lynn. I think we are all a little bit better for knowing Dick. Our thoughts are with Betty and her family at this time, and we are all sad to part with an old friend.
