Bishop’s Stortford Swifts hold minute’s silence to remember Cian Chantrill and Squin Clarke
Bishop’s Stortford Swifts paid their respects to two much-loved characters ahead of their 0-0 home draw with Sungate at Silver Leys on Saturday (November 18).
The players observed a minute’s silence to remember their former player Cian Chantrill and local sporting legend Squin Clarke.
Chantrill died last month aged just 20 during his first term studying for a degree in electronic music production at Manchester’s BIMM Music Institute.
Clarke, 86, died on Friday (November 17) having been a regular at Silver Leys and Cricketfield Lane in his numerous roles for Bishop’s Stortford rugby and cricket clubs. He also spent 25 years working for Mullucks, the estate agent and club sponsor where Swifts chairman Martin Nash is an associate director.
The stalemate against the second-placed visitors means seventh-placed Swifts have picked up four wins and a draw in their last five ProKit UK Essex Olympian League, Premier Division matches.
They also reached the Hertfordshire Senior Trophy quarter-finals last week thanks to a 3-0 win at Codicote.
Meanwhile, Swifts reserves made it 10 wins a draw from their last 11 outings as Matt Kemp’s brace and an effort from Connor La Plain earned them a 3-1 success at Pitsea Town in Division Three.
