RIP Nigel Green

It is with profound sadness that the club has learned of the passing of 1st XI scorer Nigel Green.

Nigel passed away suddenly whilst out walking on Sunday 5th July at the age of 59.

He was a popular figure who had scored for Wellington since 2017. He was a huge fan of cricket and he was keenly looking forward to the return to action in the next few weeks.

Our thoughts are with Nigel’s family and friends at this extremely sad time. Once we have details of his funeral arrangements, we will share these on this website.

  1. Nigel and I played on the same team for University College Cork (UCC) in the late 1980s. He made a lasting impression with his ready smile and laugh. An absolute gent. I am very sad to hear of his untimely passing. May he rest in peace.

    I played cricket with Nigel in Cork Ireland in the early 1990s, Nigel played inter varsity Cricket and League Cricket with the University College Cork CC. He was powerful clean hitter of the ball and bowled quick with an unusual sling action, he was a fine slip fielder but most importantly he was the beating heart of the dressing room and all of us from that team remember him belting out the Blaydon races in the bar at Cork County Cricket club. We have many great stories of Nigel’s time in Cork and it is devastating news to hear of his passing. On behalf of those who remember Nigel with great fondness from his years at UCC and his many friends in Cork my deepest sympathies to Nigel’s family and friends. If I might share an old Irish blessing- Ar dheis de go raibh a h-anam naofa- let his holy soul go to the right of God
