A POPULAR cricket club secretary who spent decades working in Sheffield’s scissor manufacturing industry has died suddenly while on holiday abroad.

Roger Handley, aged 68, who helped to run Totley Cricket Club, suffered a heart attack during a break in Cyprus with his partner of more than 30 years, Allyson Handley.

Allyson said she has been left ‘devastated’ by Roger’s tragic death, which happened on her 54th birthday, adding he will be much-missed in Sheffield’s cricketing community.
