Today marks a sad day for all those involved with the Bayswater Football and Cricket Clubs with the passing of Life Member Paul Creed.

Loved by so many for his passion to make both our sporting clubs a better place, he will be irreplaceable.

A man who gave so much of his life to making our clubs professional and successful.

A man who welcomed newcomers with open arms and treated players, members and supporters like family.

A man who took it upon himself to get jobs done, I think we all miss his 2am emails letting us know what's going on at the club.

He fought his latest battle with cancer to the end, even making sure that he made it down to the cricket club last Saturday for his final Pink Stumps Day. 

The club extends its condolences to wife Ros, son Dale, daughter Adele and their families, to Paul's mother Janet, to his brothers Gary, Mark and Simon, who also played for the cricket club and their families and also to Doug and Gill Smith and family.

RIP mate, we are definitely going to miss you.
