Unsung Hero - Tony Gibbs

Unsung Hero - Tony Gibbs

Hertfordshire are fortunate to have a ‘Tony Gibbs’ – scorer, match manager, editor of the annual handbook and keeper of all cricketing records since 1895. 

For 23 years Tony Gibbs shared the scoring duties of Minor County matches for Hertfordshire with Brian Mulholland and more recently Mike Arnold and Connor Mulholland. He scored on more than 200 days of Minor County cricket (more than 60 three day games and in excess of 50 one day games) as well as many other Hertfordshire games at age group levels (junior and senior) to add to that total. He retired from scoring in 2018 but, wanting to continue to support the County, he took up the role of match manager which for home games involves liaising with the home club and caterers, selling scorecards and ensuring that the opposition were well looked after.

For five years he edited the County handbook and he has maintained and enhanced the statistical records of everyone who has played for Hertfordshire since 1895.

In 2019 he was elected vice-president of the County – recognition which he greatly deserved.

We thank you Tony for your incredible support and commitement.
