Club to host Edrich & Jackman memorial - Kia Oval Skip to main content

Surrey County Cricket Club will host a memorial service to celebrate the lives of Club legends John Edrich & Robin Jackman on the evening of Wednesday 17th November.

Edrich & Jackman, two of the greatest players to have worn the Three Feathers, both died in December 2020. As this occurred during the height of the coronavirus pandemic in the UK, the decision was made to delay the memorial until as many Surrey Members could attend as possible.

The event is free and open to all Surrey Members although all who plan to attend must book. Booking is required. You can do this by emailing membership@surreycricket.com and quoting ‘Jackman & Edrich memorial’ including your Membership number.

It will begin at 6:30pm in the Long Room of the Micky Stewart Members’ Pavilion at The Kia Oval with a card bar fully stocked with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available throughout the evening.

Club Chaplain and vicar of St Mark’s Church, Steve Coulson, will host the evening. Teammates of the two players, including Alan Butcher, Pat Pocock and Micky Stewart, will give their memories of playing alongside Edrich & Jackman before Club Chairman Richard Thompson closes the event.

In order to ensure your place at the event, please book by emailing membership@surreycricket.com and quoting ‘Jackman & Edrich memorial’ including your Membership number.
