TWO stalwarts of the cricket set-up at McKane Park will be remembered this weekend with a special T20 game being staged.

Colin Campbell and Kevin Walker were players and club officials who gave between them well over 60 years service but a brain tumour took Colin in 2010 and then in 2013 a heart problem saw Kevin pass away.

The duo were not only players for Dunfermline Cricket Club but also hard working treasurers who spent years, at different eras at McKane, making sure that ends met.

Accountant Colin was a hard hitting middle order batsmen who made his debut for Fife in the County Championship in 1973 and who was to play first team cricket at McKane until the 1990s.

He was also a decent bowler who gave the ball a good tweak with his leg spinners.

Policeman Kevin was a wicket-keeper who could bat well down the order and he played an important role for Dunfermline 2nd XI as it made its way up the East Grades divisions in the 1990s to eventually make Grade A.

McKane Park enthusiasts were shocked with the early and untimely death of both these huge personalities and it was decided to hold a T20 game on Sunday to remember their service.

Dunfermline and Carnegie captain Wayne Sullivan said: “They were both larger than life characters who were influential players but also served the McKane Park cause so solidly behind the scenes as treasurer at different times.

“We think that they should be remembered and Sunday, July 17 will be a big day at the ground with the T20 match featuring a host of former club players who played with both Colin and Kevin over a period of 40 years.

“It will be a family day out and at the same time we hope to raise funds for both families.”
