Worcestershire County Cricket Club to Honour Josh Baker’s Memory with Shirt Tribute

In a heartfelt tribute to Josh’s memory and his profound impact on the Club, his teammates have made the decision to wear Josh’s number on their playing shirts for the remainder of the season.

Worcestershire County Cricket Club CEO, Ashley Giles, commented, “It is clear from the outpouring of love we’ve seen, following last week’s awful news, that Josh touched the lives of everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. 

“Wearing Josh’s number on their shirts is a way for the team, and all involved with Worcestershire cricket, to pay tribute to his memory and keep his spirit alive on the field.

“Josh’s Mum and Dad, Lisa and Paul, have asked us to thank everyone for the hundreds of messages of love and support that they have received since Josh’s passing. 

“As we all continue to navigate through this very difficult time, we encourage our members, supporters, and the cricketing community to join us in honouring Josh’s memory and celebrate the life of a remarkable young man who will forever hold a special place in our hearts.”

Anyone wishing to give their tribute to Josh can sign a book of condolence at New Road or write an online message by clicking here.
