John Hammerton

It is with deep regret that we announce the death of John Hammerton who sadly passed away on Sunday after a short illness. John was a true club stalwart in every sense of the word having taken on many different roles in the running of both the clubs cricket and football sections as well as the Sports Club itself.

Together with Ian Moxon and Ron Skaife, they set up the Junior Cricket section at Osbaldwick in 1976, winning the under 16 league in its inaugural season. From this small acorn a vast production line of talent came through the ranks providing the backbone of the senior teams that rose so quickly through the Senior League in the 80’s and 90’s. John was involved in the ever expanding junior section for more than a decade whilst also serving on the committee, including the role of treasurer from 1979-1984. In acknowledgement of all his hard work, the Cricket section made him a Life Member, a reward so richly deserved.

Outside of OCC, John also helped develop the talents of other youngsters by running the York & District Senior Cricket League youth representative team, AKA the Joe Lumb side. He acted as Manager/Secretary/Treasurer/Scorer/Transporter at some time during his tenure. He took on all these jobs with such passion and commitment through the 1980’s, and up until 1997.

As well as his hard work with the Cricket, John put his efforts in to the Football section. From the early years of their formation, he was involved as the club surged through the divisions and went on to win an unprecedented 11 successive Division 1 titles from 82/83-92/93. He was on the committee for many years including a spell as the sections treasurer.

John was amongst the members of the Sports Club that had the vision to move the club forward at pace. He was one of the guarantors who risked their own cash and helped provide the means for expanding the club with the addition of a new bar/lounge in 1978. The same bar which we now all enjoy to this day. He was an active supporter of the club during the years when the club was under serious threat from the parish council who were determined to hijack all the hard work of the members. He thoroughly enjoyed his voluntary bar duties for both the sections he served so well and all the never ending fund raising that was needed, as well as socialising at the other side of the bar whenever he could. To add to his list of many roles he took on, he was also Membership Secretary for the Sports Club for several years.

No matter how many other roles and duties John had, he always made sure he had time to watch his own lads play their rugby and cricket all over the north. He will have taken great pride in the achievements of both Mick and Chris in whichever sporting field they took to, both of them going on to be great cricket players for the club he served so well.

We all send our deepest condolences to Margaret, Mick, Chris and their families at this sad time.

Ian Moxon

It is with regret and sadness that we were informed of the death of Ian Moxon, who passed away last Thursday only a few weeks after his brother Phil.

Ian was a very active member of our club, serving on the committee for many years which included two stints as Secretary in 1957-58 & 1961-67 and Chairman in 1972-1974. It is possible his secretarial duties were even longer but we only have these records dating back to 1957. He also captained the 1st XI from 1959-1963 and then had a spell as 2nd XI captain in 1975-76.

But to those of you of a certain age you will know this barely scratches the surface of the importance of Ian to OCC. He was at the heart of those striving to make our club the best it could be, starting with creating a settled ground at The Leyes in the mid 1950’s and then following that with changing facilities and a clubhouse in the 1970’s. This involved proper hands on graft and fund raising, where his wife Sallie would join with the other ladies to organise whist drives and other functions which provided the club with the means to push forward.

In 1976 a York junior league was formed and Ian was at the forefront of running our first under 16 team, which went on to win the league title that year. The junior set up under his leadership would start to provide the backbone of the senior team which saw us rise up the divisions. Players such as Mick & Chris Hammerton, Dave Stamp, Neil Bellerby, Marcus Hollis, Mark Ridsdale and Steve Machen to name but a few would all come through the ranks in the early years. Countless more would continue to flow in to the senior ranks over the next decade or more in no small part thanks to Ian’s time and dedication. This arguably would be his greatest legacy he left OCC, what we would give now to have the same flow of juniors.

Ian’s final season on the committee was 1987 and at the end of the year he was made a life member in recognition of his 40 years or so of service to the club.

I had the privilege of having a lengthy chat with Ian last summer in the run up to our big reunion event. He told me of his first involvement with the cricket as a teenager when we played on Jewitts field, just off Murton Way. Then a few seasons later we would move to the Co-operative field, then a field behind the Vicarage and then on to the Derwent Arms. He had great pride in his involvement with stopping the nomadic life of the club and getting us a permanent home where we still remain 60+ years later. I could tell he still had great passion for the club and this could be seen when he turned up in July with his old-school OSC jumper and enjoyed the afternoon with us. In the wake of the last few weeks I am now even more pleased we managed to put this event on and show our gratitude in some small way.

All at Osbaldwick Cricket Club send their condolences to Sallie, their son Neil and the rest of Ian’s family. His contribution to OCC and to the Sports Club should never be forgotten, RIP Ian.
