Sad News - Gordon Barron

It is with great sadness that we are letting you know that Gordon Barron, passed away peacefully in ARI (aged 90) on Wednesday 20th November after a short illness. Gordon joined Stoneywood CC in 1970 aged 41 and helped win the Aberdeenshire Cup in his first three seasons at Peoples Park. Gordon began his involvement with cricket in his hometown of Inverurie in the 1940s and after marrying a Culter quine in the mid-50s moved to Cults CC. He was primarily a batsman; with a career high of 92 achieved v Boddam CC in Grade One in the early-60s.

After a few more seasons with Stoneywood in the 1st XI in G1, Gordon stepped down to join son (Alan) in the 2nd XI in the Reserve Grade – selection for that side often being based on who had a car to transport the young side to away fixtures. The highlight of their time together in the 2nd XI being when both took five wicket hauls v Balmoral at DP2 in the Reserve Grade.

His final playing season was 1975 after which he and his wife followed Stoneywood games involving Alan. Gordon was someone who fully embraced the introduction of the SCU Small Clubs Cup in the mid-80s and became Club President in the late-80s.

He then helped push through the amalgamation of Stoneywood & Dyce CCs with the Club winning the afore-mentioned Small Clubs Cup in the final year of his Presidency in 1991. He continued to attend games Alan played in for many years; being especially supportive of a burgeoning junior set-up. Whilst his attendance at matches tailed off he still kept abreast of the development of local youngsters and was rightly proud of the full international recognition for home-grown talents Stuart Coetzer, Kyle Coetzer, Gordon Goudie, Fiona Urquhart and Michael Leask.

His funeral will take place at 1345 on Thursday 28/11 in the East Chapel at Aberdeen Crematorium.
