A long-serving member of a cricket club who led his team to its first top flight title in the region has stepped down as chairman.
Lee Fitzsimmons, who has been an integral part of Great Yarmouth Cricket Club (GYCC) for 25 years, has been praised for his “massive achievements” at the club and has now been made life president.
Adam Cory, social media manager at GYCC, has thanked Mr Fitzsimmons for the commitment and dedication he has shown during his time at the club.
He said: “We cannot be more thankful of everything Lee has done for us both on and off the pitch.
“The club would not have been here without him.”
In 2013, Mr Fitzsimmons captained the club’s first team - guiding them to their first division one title of the Norfolk Cricket League.
Mr Fitzsimmons, who has been chairman of the club for the last couple of years, will be replaced by Mark Chapman.
Anyone interested in joining or sponsoring GYCC should contact Mark on 07742 974983 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
