The Passing of Mick Dorman

Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, September 27th, 2016 at 8:36 am

We are saddened to learn of the passing of ex 1st XI captain Mick Dorman at the age of 84.

Michael Dorman was a long serving member of our club and a stalwart in the 60’s and 70’s, making 286 appearances for Kennington between 1957 and 1977. He was responsible for a lot of the building work on the old pavilion along with Cecil (Twiz) Grant and Fred Flawn.

Mike was definitely one of the best captains we ever had. He was also hilarious when he ‘overindulged’ in local cider on cricket tour and fell down a hill. He also solved the problem of a former treasurer who absconded with some of the club’s funds by suggesting it would be better for his health if he paid the club back!

Captaining the 1st XI for 134 matches between 1965 and 1967 and then again in 1971, he won 64 of those, 21 were drawn/tied/abandoned and 49 were lost.

His career batting statistics were as follows:

Innings: 274
Not Out: 22
Runs: 3048
Highest Score: 80
100’s: 5
Average: 12.10

And his bowling statistics were:

Overs: 823.3
Maidens: 133
Runs: 2502
Wickets: 229
Best Figures: 9-34
5 Wicket Hauls: 11
Average: 10.93

A request has been made by his wife and family to scatter his ashes on our ground at the lower end (as Twiz’s were).

We extend our deepest sympathy to all his family and friends, and would like to show our appreciation for all his efforts on and off the field by making a charitable donation in his honour.
