Obituary - David Whelan
Tuesday 5th May 2015

It is with regret that Southport and Birkdale CC announces the passing of one of its biggest supporters, David Whelan.

David, who passed away today, was described as 'a true gentleman in every way who always had time for people and supported all players and was always positive, even in defeat.'

He played for the club's 3rd XI and also umpired for the club.

His son, Philip, played for Southport and Birkdale before moving on to Hightown.

Friends and colleagues pass their condolences to the Whelan family.
