It was suggested to me that all of the tributes paid to Erika on Facebook should go on to the website so that everyone has access to them.  They come from all over the world and from players past and present. They nicely sum up what people felt about Erika:


“Really sad news, she was a wonderful scorer who and turned up in pretty much every weather to score for the Sunday 2’s up until only 3 seasons ago. What an innings though.”

“A fantastic supporter of the club, never shy to give advice and incredibly generous. RIP Erika.”

“What sad news for all who knew her. Erika was a wonderful member of the club. May she rest in peace.”

“Really sad news. RIP Erika.”

“Sad news. Wonderful supporter of W&H.”

“Very sad news. A wonderful character and supporter of the club for many years. Few of us will forget her harsh - and absolutely justified - words after yet another batting collapse.”

“Very sad indeed. Lovely lady and a great supporter of the club. A big loss.”

“Oh so sad to read this. She was such a character x”

“The club has lost a true legend and supporter of the club. I will miss her passionate disappointment of the teams’ (and often mine) lack of performance, as well as her dogs who were equally dazed and patient observers. Rest easy Erica.”

“I'm completely devastated to hear this news. She was always so very kind to me and looked after Dave when she was doing the scoring at his matches. She was as much "the club" as the members. Both Dave and I enjoyed speaking with her and hearing her stories. Dave loved her very much and always rang her once a week to make sure she was okay. What a huge loss to the club. So very sad. My thoughts, condolences and love to her family xxx”
