RIP Russ Evans
« on: December 01, 2017, 03:19:34 PM »

Sudden Passing of Russell Evans

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death yesterday evening of B3 Director and ECB umpire, Russell Evans.

Russ was taken suddenly at just 52 years of age. We are going to miss him greatly. The cricket world has lost a true gentleman who just loved his family and the game.

Our thoughts are with his family.

Rest in Peace Russ x

Really very sad news indeed. Condolences to Russell's family, friends and of course his work colleagues at B3. Met Russ, being a B3 customer, attending the first couple of birthday parties as well as seeing him at Old Trafford when he was officiating in the County Championship. What a terrible shame.

Very sad, a thoroughly nice guy and friend of the forum who also helped me with a few batting tips which were spot on.

Truly saddened for Russells family and friends. I never met the man being based here in oz, but can see how much he was liked and respected across the cricket community.

That's awful. He sounded like a splendid chap. I'm sure he'll be remembered very fondly by all who knew him.
