It is with the deepest sadness that the Cowbridge Cricket Club report the loss of Jonathan Smart who died suddenly on the 14th June 2020.
Jonathan had been at the heart of the Club all his adult life. A fine slow bowler, six times Captain, Club Secretary, Junior Coach and now Team Manager of the 1st XI shows his dedication to the Club but the list does not give a true picture of his contribution. That he was ‘one of the very best of men’ is a sentiment that has been widely expressed by those who had the privilege of knowing him.
The club’s sense of loss is very real. However it cannot compare with that of his partner Claire, parents Richard and Gaynor and twin brother Matthew together with their families. To them we extend our deepest sympathy.
Jonathan Smart 1974 -2020
Jon’s funeral took place on Friday 26th June2020 at Coychurch Crematorium; however due to the Coronavirus restrictions only family members were able to attend the service.
