Ian’s daughter Julie rang me this morning with the sad news that Ian passed away last night.

He was a massive part of our club and will always be remembered for the great work he did for the Cricket Section. He spent many years helping Peter Cope and latterly helping me on the ground. He was also a keen member of our Cricket Committee and represented us on The North Manchester Cricket League Executive.

His contribution to our club and me personally was so significant I cannot at this time find the words to do him justice. His whole family were a significant part of the fabric of PCC, Yvonne a regular on teas, his daughters Julie and Nicky were scorers and Neil a superb member of our 1st XI for years.

PCC prides itself at being a family club and Ian and his family are a perfect example of that belief.

On behalf of everybody at the club RIP Rapps and condolences to the family.

UPDATE: Ian Wright’s funeral will be on Tuesday 23rd March from 1:30pm at Radcliffe Crematorium. It will be streamed live and further details of this will be released when known.
