It is with great sadness that the Club has learned of the passing of Henry Cutino, aged 95.
Jamaican born Henry made his debut for Hatfield in 1962 (hitting 106 versus Hoddesdon) and went on to score 7,258 runs, at an average of 25.65, take 483 wickets at 15.34 and hold 121 catches before retiring in 1975. In 1972 an injury resulted in Henry losing the sight of his right eye, which led to a number of fundraisers being organised by the Club, culminating in a dinner at the Old Palace, Hatfield House. Following his injury Henry qualified as a coach and ran the Club’s colts section until his retirement 1984.
The pinnacle of Henry’s career came in 1965 when he was selected to play for Hertfordshire against Bedfordshire in the Minor Counties Championship.
It is with sadness that the Club must report that Jock Bruce passed away on 4th June.
Jock joined Hatfield Cricket Club in 1980 and with his slow right-arm round bowling claimed 273 career wickets. Whilst not the most prolific wicket takers, Jock was one of the most economical bowlers in the modern history of the Club with his 2,175 overs going at a miserly 2.70 runs per over. Jock also valued his wicket and was incredibly not out in over half of his innings for the Club.
Jock was a true club man, between 1986 and 1992 he was Colts Manager, his under 15 side winning the Herts County Cup in 1988, and he spent many years as 1st XI umpire.
In his later years Jock continued his involvement and would be seen at Ascots Lane most weeks. He will be sorely missed.
