In Memoriam our Member of Merit Kick Onkenhout (1929-2022)

Saturday, April 30, we were informed that our Member of Merit Kick Onkenhout passed away at the respectable age of 92 years.

As 12 year old Kick became member of the CC Haarlem in 1942. Their 1st season at the Donkerelaan Cricket ground in Bloemendaal. During the years he was not only a valuable player in our youth and senior teams but also active as board- and committee member.

His finest ‘hour’, without doubt, was an impressive contribution to our 100 year anniversary book. Describing the first 75 years of CC Haarlem and it’s successor CC Bloemendaal. Doing so, not only 2-3 years of intensive research were spend in the archives of our club but also his skills as historian became visible.

Kick was a regular visitor of home matches of our 1st team, but due to his immobility the last few years these visits became impossible.

Kick will not only be be remembered as a friendly personality who enjoyed real contacts, but foremost as a backbone member supporting the club for a long time in both bad and good times.


A more in depth ‘in memoriam’ will be published the coming week.
