    The Russ Evans Cricket Development Fund

    Russ passed away suddenly on November 30th 2017. He was just 52 years of age. He loved his family and his cricket, they were his life.

    Russ played professionally for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club before going onto work in the cricket bat industry for Gunn and Moore. In 2012, he left GM to set up a new bat manufacturer, B3 Cricket. In 2013 Russ realised his dream of becoming an ECB First Class Umpire.

    The cricket world has been rocked by Russell's sudden death. The tributes and outpouring off sadness have shown how well respected and loved he was. The England cricket team wore black armbands as mark of respect to Russ, when the Adelaide Test commenced the day after his death.

    This fund has been set up to help family and friends commemorate Russ in a way we think he would have liked. The funds raised will be used to help someone in need of financial help in a cricket context. This may be a young cricketer requiring the opportunity to reach their potential, it could be an aspiring umpire or scorer.

    The trustees of the fund ( Russell's wife, Alison and brother, Kevin) will make sure the money goes to a cause which he would have been enthusiastic about.

    Thank you in advance for your support and fond memories of Russ, a true gentleman both on and off the field.

    Heres are some of the tributes paid from the cricket world:
