Rangers honour top trio

Former Southampton Rangers cricketers John Tucker, Lee Raynor and Olin Jones have been honoured for their commitment and contributions to the club.

The trio, who played an integral role in helping Rangers win numerous league and club honours, were honoured at the Second Annual Sheridan Raynor Community Day held at Southampton Oval last weekend.

“This year's honourees have put a lot of time in the club and the community,” said Kwame Tucker, chairman of the organising committee.

“They are gentleman that Southampton Rangers look for and give back to the club.”

Eldon Raynor and Shiraz Ali were the first two former Rangers players recognised by Tucker's committee.

Lee Raynor, the brother of the late Sheridan Raynor, did not attend the event that also featured an Old Boys' 30-overs match between the Sheridan Blues and Harley Rangers, which the former won by 48 runs. The Sheridan Blues piled up 204 for nine in their allotted overs after electing to bat, with Ricky Brangman, the captain and Rangers coach, top scoring with 35. Also among the runs were Sheridan “Baldy” Ming who chipped in with 31.

Daylan Richardson led the Harley Rangers attack with two for 17.

The Harley Rangers replied with 156 for eight, with Richardson also leading his team's batting with of 49 and Kamen Tucker adding 33 and Sheldon Caesar 30. Darren “Butch” Burchall, Gary Crofton and honouree Jones each claimed two wickets for the Sheridan Blues.

Burchall, the former Rangers wicketkeeper, was chosen as man of the match for his fine all-round display for the winning team.
