The North West Cricket Union is saddened to learn of the death earlier today of former Waterside CC player, Liam Bradley.

Liam passed away suddenly at his Hayesbank Park home on the day of his 74th birthday.


(Liam Bradley)

He joined the Corrody club in 1973 and was part of the team that lost the senior cup final to Donemana at Eglinton the following year.

Liam continued to play for the club throughout; even after Waterside lost their senior status in 1986.

Along with George McDaid they kept the flag flying at Midweek and Intermediate level up until the early 90's.

A popular schoolteacher, he taught at St Joseph's Boys, Carnhill and indeed also spent several years working in Zambia.

Liam was also a keen footballer and an excellent squash player whenever he wasn't opening the batting at Corrody.

Liam is survived by his wife Mary, sons Eamon and Stephen and daughters Roisin, Leanne and Judith.

Our deepest condolences are extended to the family at this very difficult time.

May his gentle soul Rest In Peace.
