A minute of applause was held at the Beaminster Cricket Club for a beloved cricket player and ardent supporter of the Beaminster Cricket Club.

Tributes have been paid to David ‘Grobag’ Grove, who tragically died of a heart attack at the age of 56.

Cricket fan David traveled to Bournemouth to attend Beaminster’s last game last season.

David died in March, at the first peak of the coronavirus pandemic, and many of David’s many friends were unable to pay their respects and say goodbye to the dearly beloved man.

He has played for Broadwindsor and Melplash and has also acted as a referee at several matches in Dorset.

Members of the Beaminster Cricket Club decided to honor him before and during the match at the end of last month.

The tribute in Beaminster came after a similar event was held in memory of David in Broadwindsor.

Both teams and spectator scores participated under a minute of applause.

And members of the club and spectators wore green bracelets – a nod to David’s favorite soccer team, Yeovil Town.

David has worked in several factories over the years, his last job was at Tetra Pak, Sherborne.

Chris Park, of the Beaminster Cricket Club, said, “I’ve known David all my life, he was a good friend of mine.

“He has lived in Beaminster all his life and is always in and around the cricket club.

Everyone around the club and the city in general knew him.

“We thought this was the right thing to do, he was a big part of the club.”

David’s father, John, and his brother, Ian, were both present at the tribute.

Mr Park added: “It was a shame we couldn’t win the match for him that day. But I have to say that Weymouth was great with their support, they were very nice to participate.

“It was very fitting that so many people showed up to pay their respects, it really showed how good he was in the community.

“I think David’s father and brother were very touched by the tribute and the attendance.”

Due to the nature of the lockdown restrictions, many of his friends and inmates were unable to pay their respects to David, who passed away in March.

A private family funeral was held.
