BOB (Snowy) MADDOCKS (1936 - 2014)
Club stalwart, Bob Maddocks, died on 1st May after a short battle with cancer at the age of 77. Snowy, as he was affectionately known, had a long association with the cricket club dating back to 1962 when his then brother-in-law, Bill Gass, brought Bob to Northfields Lane to watch a Second Xl game in which Bill was playing. This was the days of the 'old green hut' when Bob was a policeman living and working in Exeter. It wasn't until the mid-1970's when George Robert, his Christened name, had moved to Brixham and joined the club supporting his two sons, Guy and Ross, who were both playing colts cricket. Approaching the age of forty, Bob decided to start playing the game himself, and became a regular Second Xl player until the early 1990's, carving a reputation for himself as a steady wily medium pacer. He enjoyed his best season in 1986 when he took 42 wickets at an average of 10.3 in the Devon Cricket League B Division. This was the same season he celebrated his fiftieth birthday on the end of season cricket tour when the team had a whip-round for a police woman stripogram - a much talked about treat!
As he got older his bowling arm became lower and lower and the delivery slower, but still he nagged away bowling a consistent line and length. If he had a good day on the field to find others mocking or questioning his success, he would simply look them in the eyes and deliver his stock answer "look in the book, just look in the book".p>He's the only person to receive an Honorary Life Membership at both the cricket and rugby club. Bob died on May 1st, two days after marrying Sue Cotterill whom he'd lived with for nearly twenty years, and two days before the start of the new cricket league season.
