  • Peter Richards

    Peter Richards

    Committee Member

    A member of the club since the age of 10 (over 45 years) Peter started playing cricket for our colts and went on to play for the seniors in the 2nd, 3rd and Vets teams. He's held many positions at our club, including a spell as Cricket Chairman, Fixture Secretary, Team Secretary and as the Colts Manager for a number of years, before being appointed the WHSC Secretary in March 2019. Nowadays he still regularly umpires for the cricket section. A keen footballer too in his prime (2nd & 3rd XI's) before a serious knee injury curtailed his involvement. His nickname 'Briegel' was inspired by a similar hairstyle sported the German international footballer of the 1980's - Hans Peter Briegel.
