Jack Prowse

Everyone at Wendron CC and wendron FC  will be sad to learn of the death, on Sunday 24th June, of former vice chairman, Jack Prowse, aged 82.

Jack first joined Wendron in the 1990s, to help publish the club newsletter, the ‘Wendron Whirlwind’. He served as a member of the main committee for a number of years and was President of Football during one of the club’s most successful periods, taking great pleasure in playing host to officials and dignatories from visiting clubs.

But Jack will be most remembered for the hundreds of hours of dedicated service he gave to the preparation of pitches at Underlane. In all winds and weathers, he could be seen driving his ride-on mower across an already beautiful pitch in order to remove the millimetres of growth from the previous day, ensuring a perfect playing surface for Wendron’s footballers.
His efforts with the ground were recognised by others. In 2009 he won a Football Association national groundmanship award, presented by BBC football pundit, Mark Lawrenson. Sky Sports TV cameras and an appearance on Sky Sports news soon followed, enabling Jack to give a tongue-in-cheek interview that suggested the Wembley pitch might be improved if a flock of sheep were installed by the FA!
In 2011, Jack was very proud to have been made a vice president of the Cornwall County Football Association.
Funeral arrangements have yet to be confirmed.
