John Shellabear

It is with great regret and sadness that South Wilts CC announce the passing on Sunday March 8th of much respected former player and Vice President, John Shellabear.

John, originally from Dorchester when he represented Dorset, joined the club from Basingstoke and North Hants. 

He played for the club between 1963 and 1979, making over 150 appearances and scoring around just shy of 2000 runs. He was 1st XI Captain from 1964 to the end of the 1967 season.

Following his retirement from cricket , John remained an active supporter of the club, with his presence at many of our home matches and as a contributing Vice President.

The thoughts of the Club are with his family at this time.
