He spent much of his life dedicated to Cornwall cricket and now the memory of one of Falmouth's sporting greats will live on after the town named its pavilion after him.

A cricketing all rounder both on and off the field, Tommy Meneer served as Falmouth Cricket Club president, chairman and captain over the years, as well as Cornwall cricket secretary for 13 of them.

Fittingly for a man who served as county club secretary from 1978 until 1991, the ceremony was held on the only County weekend of 2020 due to Covid-19.

In a ceremony conducted on Saturday by Falmouth club chairmen past and present, Mike Toy and Mark Averiss, tributes were paid to Tom who died in July 2019.

The club had planned to hold the ceremony in April, at the start of the cricketing season, but the occasion was delayed by four months due to coronavirus restrictions.

Tom's sons David and Keith unveiled a plaque in his honour, with long serving club team secretary David Richardson raising a new club flag donated by the Meneer family.

Current club chairman Mark Averiss said: "Tom enjoyed a Famous Grouse and always did laps of the ground, talking to as many people as he could.

"On Saturday we poured ourselves a little glass and everyone present walked the two laps Tommy did so often, as a mark if respect."
