Our Deepest Sympathies

Thornton Class of ’85 Martin Smith and Paul Martin and Richard Bakes

Paul Martin

It is with great sadness that a good long term school friend of mine who has played in the South Bradford League for many years has passed away after a long battle with Cancer.

Paul, 48, was a member of Clayton Liberal club for over 30 years and played for the club during this time. He passed away on 14th February and his funeral takes place this Friday, 3rd March at 1.30pm at St John’s Church, Clayton, followed by cremation at Scholemoor.

He had a larger than life personality, always good for a laugh and was certainly someone who was popular during our school time together and during his life since that time, a great character who continued his popularity throughout the leagues and in the village he grew up in.

Paul will be sadly missed and condolences are sent from the snooker fraternity and on behalf of me and our old school friends to his family for their loss. It was a pleasure to have known him.

RIP Paul Martin

Richard Bakes
