Alistair Hunter - Rest in Peace

The NCSMBA are saddened to hear that Alistair Hunter, former Norfolk Premier team bowler, captain of Kirby Bedon SMBC and a former Scottish international, passed away this morning after sustaining injuries in a car accident a week ago. Alistair played for Kirby Bedon SMBC during the many seasons when they were one of the counties most successful clubs with whom he won many trophies. Alistair served as NCSMBA Competition Secretary from 2001 to 2005. He skipped a Norfolk rink to the final of the England National Fours held in Kettering in 2001 which included Gordon Crowe, Lianne Cole (now Mills) and Bob Oatway. They lost a closely contested final but left with their heads held high. At Norfolk level his first county title was won in the 1999/2000 season when, playing at number two with Kirby Bedon team mates Teresa & Selwyn Goldsmith, he lifted the Norfolk Triples title. His second county title was in 1998/99 when he won the Norfolk County Fours. He reached several other County finals finishing runner-up in the Singles in 2004/5, runner up in the County Pairs with Ian McLean  in 2004/5, runner-up in the County Triples in 1997/8 and 2003/4 and runner-up in the County Fours in 2000/01 and 2005/6. He was also proud to wear the blue blazer representing Scotland in the British Isles Championships. Alistair was also a lifelong supporter of Hibernian football club. The NCSMBA would like to express their condolences to Fiona and the family at this sad time.
