Ronnie Palester, one of the stalwarts of Jewish cricket, is retiring after more than 40 years of playing and involvement in administration.
Palester, 70, founded Belmont Synagogue CC, where over the years he captained all four XIs. He is the current manager of Barnet Synagogue CC and also serves as President of Belmont & Edgware.
A former wicketkeeper-batsman, Palester of Barnet retired five years ago. His best performance saw him claim four catches and three stumpings in one match.
