Mark was a special friend. One of own who played League, Interleague and County and we’d be really surprised if there is anyone here who didn’t know him or hasn’t met him at some time.

To his credit Mark stayed very positive throughout, the same as he played his pool & we know he wouldn’t have had it any other way. Now Mark liked the odd wind up & in his last few weeks, he would often say that at the first sign of any conflict or really boring conversation with visitors, he’d say “it’s okay, I’ll just pull a sicky, turn over & let them get on with it”. Typical Mark; always liked a laugh & a joke.
