Stirlands CC have installed a memorial bench for Stewart Mason, who passed away unexpectedly in April.

Stewie was assistant groundsman for many years and kept the Birdham outfield in beautiful condition as well as helping out every matchday as well as on other occasions.

Stewie was only 60 when he died and the club were keen to remember him in this way.

His wife Marion, accompanied by their sons Tim and Sam, attended a dedication ceremony at Stirlands when the bench was presented.
