Obituary - Michael Appleton
Tuesday 14th May 2019

The death was announced today of Michael Appleton. He was 81.

Mike, knows as 'Appy', joined St Helens Recs in 1972 from neighbouring St Helens who were playing in the Manchester Association and was a member of the Recs team that won the Liverpool Competition in 1978.

An off spinner, he played in St Helens Recs 1st XI until 1991 before playing out his career in their 2nd XI.

A man with a dry sense of humour, he would address everyone as 'Brother', Mike will be sadly missed by his friends and colleagues.

Condolences go to Mike's family and St Helens Town Cricket Club.

Details of Mike's funeral will be published in due course.
