About the Peter MacLaverty† Memorial Trophy

Peter MacLaverty† died on Wednesday 6th August at 3.15pm aged 70 years (27.7.1944 – 6.8.2014) after losing his battle against a serious illness.

Remembered fondly by all that new him, Peter MacLaverty† – the entrepreneur, passionate cricketer, squash player and golfer – was involved in the inaugural meeting of the association in 1980 and was an inspiration to all that played cricket with him and worked with him on the executive and at meetings over the many years he was involved.

In 2012 Peter MacLaverty† was awarded a Services to Cricket Award recognising his many years of dedication to the sport in this country.

Renowned for his straight talking, Peter enriched our lives with his enthusiasm, commitment and unique northern Irish wit.

Each year Berne Cricket Club select a match from their cricketing calendar that will be dedicated to Peter MacLaverty†. Members are invited to attend the match, especially those who played with Peter and who served with him on the national executive, and a perpetual Peter Maclaverty† Memorial Trophy is awarded to the winning team captain at the end of the match.
