An impeccably observed minute’s silence was held before the Surrey game in honour of Mike Turner MBE, the man who gave 43 years of dedicated service to Leicestershire County Cricket Club.

We welcomed Mike’s family and friends to Grace Road, and players, officials and staff also paid tribute to Mike ten minutes before the game was originally scheduled to start.

The funeral service for Mike will be held at St Andrews Church in Aylestone on Tuesday, August 4th at 10 o’clock in the morning. St Andrews Church is on Old Church Street in Aylestone, Leicester, postcode LE2 8ND.

By request, family flowers only. Donations, if desired, may be made to the East Midlands Pacemaker Fund and forwarded to The Co-operative Funeralcare, 753 Aylestone Road, Leicester, LE2 8TG.
