8 Nov 2015 The Indoor Division 1 fixture between IW Prison Officers and Newport has been postponed after the sad death of IW Prison Officers' manager John Searle on Thursday. John was associated with the IW Prison Officers side for many years, regularly organising teams and umpiring indoor matches, and was manager of last season's side that gained promotion to Division 1 by winning Division 2.

As well as his role with the IW Prison Officers cricket team, John was also heavily involved with football on the Isle of Wight, a member of the Sunday Football League committee and treasurer of the Sunday Youth League. He received both the IOWDFA & Hampshire FA Services to Football awards for his services to Royal Canaries FC.

Thoughts are with his family and members of the IW Prison Officers side.
