It is with much sadness that on 18th October 2017 the KDCC lost one of its longest serving members. Fay Stringer was associated with the Club for 71 years from the 1946/47 Season. Fay was willing to complete any task asked of her in her early life and those tasks/achievements were:
Scorer for the KDCC in the 1946/47 State Premiership Final
Scorer for the 1st Grade Team for many years from the mid 1950’s to the early 1960’s.
Scored for the West Indies in the 1961 Tasmania vs West Indies match in Hobart.
Served on the KDCC Ladies Committee during the 1950’s.
Secretary of the Club from 1960 – 1965.
Patroness of the Club for more than a decade.
For her service she was elected to be the first female Life Member of the KDCC in 1983. Fay was the wife of the KDCC stalwart and fellow Life Member Ray Stringer who arguably played the most number of games for the KDCC from 1941 to 1973. Their son Darrel made it a family trifecta being granted Life Membership in 2012.
To show respect to Fay and her family the KDCC players will wear black armbands in all the matches starting on Sat 21st October 2017.
