It is with the most profound sadness that MCUA announce that its much-loved President, Walter Nelson, has died after a short illness.
Walter was a wise, friendly and much respected Umpire who truly loved all aspects of the game of Cricket and the very essence of MCUA coursed through his veins.
Over many years he served the association with distinction, firstly as an Umpire, then as committee member, assessor and latterly President.
Walter touched the lives of all those who knew him and his wit and charm will be deeply missed by all his colleagues and friends.
Our deepest and most sincere condolences are extended to his friends and family at this saddest of times.
