I presented the Spirit of Huw Thatcher award to Stan Wilson-Hughes on 17th July 2015 – just opposite Little Wembley where Huw had some of his happiest times. Congratulations to Stan who is the fifth holder of the award, and part of a grand group of lads the current 15 year olds’ team.
The Huw Thatcher Pride and Passion Shield is presented every year to the 15 year old age group at Upperthong Cricket Club. Huw was aged 15 and led his life, played his sport and played cricket with pride and passion. Read more
We have got hold of some more wrist bands because the first lot sold out. So there are plenty left. We’ll sell more bands at the events this year so they’ll all get sold. But we just wanted to let people know there are some left.
As one of Huw’s best friends said ‘so we always have part of you with us ♥’
It’s such a meaningful song and was performed beautifully by Sam Bellas and Hayley Diamond. Huw loved Hayley and Sam.
Their performance on 25th March was recorded and you can listen to it here on YouTube.
Thanks Hayley and Sam ♥ ♥
The Upperthong Cricket Club awards night : Sam Briggs is presented with the first “Huw Thatcher Pride and Passion Shield”
The Upperthong Cricket Club Huw Thatcher Pride and Passion Shield was presented for the first time on 25th September – the award was deservedly made to Sam Briggs. Maybe Huw was looking on as one of his oldest and best friends took this award with pride.
Nick, Jenny and Carys have had a Hepworth United number 2 shirt with photos and a pen- picture framed and it has been on the wall in the Sports Hall corridor – at the top of the stairs. The shirt (pictured) is in a case so is 3D instead of a flat shirt; Huw will always be a part of Holmfirth High School. He will be there in people´s hearts and with his shirt ♥
With many thanks to the school.
