David "Arkle" Randall, 27, of Browning Road, Maldon, died at Farleigh Hospice, in Chelmsford, on Friday 6th July in the afternoon after a 14-month fight with bowel cancer.

The former Plume School pupil, who broke into the first team at Maldon Cricket Club at just 14-years-old, had been visited by more than 20 members of the club less than 24 hours earlier.

He leaves mum Sue, dad Michael, brother John, and girlfriend Hayley Sheldrick.

Mr Randall's friends at Maldon Cricket Club, who, with the family's backing, unanimously decided to go ahead with the club's weekend fixtures as a tribute, have sung the praises of their former team mate.

Club captain Jimmy Ainscough, 30, who is head of PE at Maldon's Plume School, said: "He was an absolute inspiration.

"There's very few true gentlemen of sport and he was definitely one of the real gents."

The funeral will take place on Monday 16th July at noon in Maldon
