As a mark of respect to the late Bernard Burke Phoenix CC will closed all day on Tuesday and Wednesday November 26th and 27th.

Bernard was a devoted member of the club for upwards of 40yrs and fulfilled many roles including that of President in 1996 and 1997 and as unofficial club photographer and also on many occasions Captain of the 4th X1 and 5th X1. Long before it became fashionable he nurtured on these sides many very young players who were to become household Phoenix names later in their careers.

Despite having lost his ability to speak, Bernard attended the Youth Academy introductory evening last summer and was clearly justifiably proud of how the club had progressed to such an extent, a concept initially pioneered by him.
