The Cricket Paper - - ECB PREMIER LEAGUES - By James Roberts

TRIB­UTES will be paid across cricket clubs in Sur­rey this week­end in mem­ory of an Eff­in­g­ham Cricket Club player who died af­ter col­laps­ing dur­ing a match.

Mark Collin was air­lifted to hos­pi­tal af­ter suf­fer­ing a car­diac ar­rest dur­ing his team’s fix­ture against Newdi­gate on 19 Au­gust. He died at King’s Col­lege Hos­pi­tal, Lon­don, later that af­ter­noon.

Sur­rey’s T20 Blast quar­ter-fi­nal against War­wick­shire to­day will be used to pay trib­ute to Mr Collin.

Play­ers from Eff­in­g­ham’s colts sec­tion will form a guard of hon­our ahead of the match, while Sur­rey play­ers will wear black arm­bands and pho­tos of Mr Collin will be dis­played on the big screens.

“As a club and a friend we are truly hum­bled by this ges­ture from Sur­rey CC,” Eff­in­g­ham team-mate and close friend Adam Burli­son said.

Fuller’s Brew­ery Sur­rey County League have also re­quested that all teams ob­serve a minute’s si­lence be­fore this week­end’s games.
