Geoff Dixon, Captain, Chairman.

It’s with great sadness that today we announce that our former Captain and Chairman, Geoff Dixon has passed away.

Geoff represented Enfield as a player and later as Captain during what many consider to be the clubs glory years. During his career, spanning 23 years between 1958-1981, the Dill Hall Laners won the league 3 times and the Worsley Cup twice. Scoring almost 6000 runs, Geoff is considered a true legend at Enfield CC. Up until only rccently, the team Geoff led, still met regularly to celebrate the good times. Next time they will be one legend short.

Not satisfied with an illustrious playing career, after hanging up his boots. Geoff did what many of his generation did, he worked tirelessly as a volunteer at Dill Hall Lane as a committee member. Later he became Chairman were he oversaw what many other clubs rightly consider to be one of the best run cricket and social clubs in East Lancs.

Geoff’s silver hair helped him to be instantly recognisable around the club on match days, sadly his presence on match days will be no more.

Our deepest condolences go to Eileen and the rest of the Dixon family.
