Swindon Cricket Club


TRIBUTE TO BARRY COCK (BAZ) (1942-2015, played at Swindon 1959-1973).  Barry was an outstanding cricketer and rugby player.  He was an extremely accurate slow left-arm bowler and free-scoring batsman, strong on the drive.  He did most of his damage with the ball that went on with the arm, rather than being a big spinner of the ball.   His batting was delightful to watch abounding in drives and often used effectively when the side were in trouble.  He was renowned as a good player to have in your side, notably at times of crisis during a match.  He often formed a deadly bowling partnership with Alan Lenham.  Took his 500th first eleven wicket for the Club in the 1972 season and exceeded 50 wickets in a season seven times.  Took two hat-tricks both in 1963 (v South Wilts and London Caribbean), and was the Club’s top bowler in 1973 (his final season at Swindon) with 66 wickets at 13.20 runs each.  His batting developed steadily with 339, 516, 677 and 500 in seasons 1964, 1965, 1969 and 1970 respectively.  He also played for Wiltshire and Wiltshire Club & Ground.  He took over as first team captain late in the 1970 season and was captain for the 1971 season.

His sons Stuart and Alan inherited his sporting skill and passion.

Funeral service to be held at Kingsdown Crematorium on Tuesday 15th September at 1:30 pm. Baz will be sadly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him, and at his request sports shirts are to be worn, no dark clothes please.
