Toby Pound’s quarter-of-a-century’s dedicated service to Suffolk cricket was honoured at a celebration luncheon on Monday.

Sixty guests gathered to pay tribute to Pound, who took over as secretary of Suffolk County Cricket Association in 1992, on the second day of the Unicorns Championship match versus Hertfordshire at Copdock.

Pound, who has seen Suffolk play at 66 different grounds during that time, said: “If you live in Suffolk and have a passion for cricket there is no better job than being county secretary.

“It has been a great privilege to fill that role for 25 years and I have enjoyed playing a part in organising Minor Counties cricket and seeing our best young players progress alongside established former Test players.”

Ex-Essex cricketer Don Topley stood in as guest speaker at short notice after Suffolk’s former Minor Counties captain Phil Caley was unable to attend.
