Sad News - Hayden Barrett 2018

It is with sadness that we announce the passing away of Hayden Barrett. Hayden's funeral will be held on Tuesday 16th October 2018 at 11:00am, St Mary’s on the Rock, Ellon. Our sincere condolences to Hayden’s family and friends.

The following is by Jack Nixon, on behalf of Ellon Gordon Cricket Club.

"The cricket fraternity in the North-East has been shocked and stunned by the passing of Hayden Barrett of the Ellon Gordon cricket club where he has been a fixture since coming to the area in 1975.

The much respected Hayden brought not only his love of the game to the club, but also a sense of purpose, organisational skill, and a determination to give youngsters their place in the Gordon Park.

He also brought his son Jonathan into the game, presenting Ellon Gordon with the most prolific run scorer known to the 156 year old organisation.

Hayden quickly established himself in his new environment, going on to play for the first team, captain the second eleven, winning the club man of the year, filling all the major positions at the club, including being president, but most of all ensuring juniors were coached to the highest standard, leading to Ellon Gordon having one of the best under age set ups in the area, winning a number of trophies in the process.

His unflinching support for the juniors led to him having this year's Jack Nixon Junior of the Year Cup being named after him. An arrangement he was happy to accept only two days before he died.

 Hayden Barrett will probably be remembered best for his cricketing commitment in the North-East, he was also awarded an MBE for his services to the Princes Trust, underlining his dedication to the promotion and development of young people.

Above all he will be recalled at Ellon Gordon as being a thoroughly decent man, totally committed to his family to whom we send our deepest sympathy at their time of great pain and loss."
