It's sad to hear of the death of Terry Bates, former Brigg-based Glanford Borough Council leisure services officer.
Terry did not stay with the Glanford authority very long, but made his mark by launching - among other things - a series of popular quizzes at the then Glanford Leisure Centre.
Always a keen cricketer, he went on to become manager of the Lincolnshire Minor Counties team, and also worked as a full-time cricket official with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in London.
He continued to have an important role within the Lincolnshire ECB League up to his death.
Terry's son, Richard, played professionally for Nottinghamshire and is now a leading coach.
