Northwood Town Cricket Club News story

Tributes to Pam Smyth and Steve Greaves. RIP

15 Mar 2022

It is with great sadness that recently we have been informed of the passing away of two people who in their time at Northwood Town helped the club in many differing ways.

Pam Smyth – who as the wife of Terry gave him great support during his tenure as Chairman during the 2000’s. Pam was regularly in attendance at the club whether for watching cricket / assisting at social events or preparing and serving cricket teas on match days. She was a wonderful lady who was only too willing to help during her 30years plus association with the club alongside Terry.

Steve Greaves

Steve joined as Colt alongside his younger brother Paul in the early 1970’s following in his father Les’ footsteps who was a legend at the Club for over 40 years. Whilst not attaining the heights of his father, Steve who was an incredibly enthusiastic cricketer scored over 7,000 runs in his time playing senior cricket between 1974 and 1989 – predominately for the 2nd XI for whom he Captained for two seasons. Although recognised as an attacking left-handed batsman – Steve at times was also a reasonably competent bowler whether at medium pace or off breaks which is testament to some 220 wickets he took during his Town career. Steve’s involvement at the Club also extended to him being involved in several Committee positions before because of business and family commitments he moved from the area. Steve did come back to the Club a few years ago – donning his whites for one of the Town’s testimonial games.

Both Pam and Steve will be fondly remembered by those who knew them at the Cricket Club
