It is with heavy hearts that we note the passing of Whanganui Cricket Association President, Garry Spooner (Spoons) on Friday 18 November 2022. Spoons was an avid cricket fan and supporter of the Whanganui cricket community.
Garry played many seasons of club and representative cricket and was a keen follower of all sports, having been the Chairman of Sport Whanganui for 10 years and as a New Zealand Cricket code of conduct commissioner.
Spoons was a lawyer at Treadwell Gordon and had worked there all his life since being admitted to the bar in 1970.
Our thoughts are with Garry’s wife Elizabeth, their family and friends at this time.
We will miss him.

Unbelievable. An absolute gentleman and great person. After leaving Boys College he got me to join the Wanganui Club and from there we had some great times in both rep and club cricket. He formed a great bond with all the players in the club, in which there were some good ones, and we had many a fine time together. He will be sadly missed by the Wanganui Community and cricket fraternity.
Condolences to Liz and the family. ~ Neil Bannister
So sad to hear this… Condolences to Liz and family. Garry was a massive contributor to Cricket Whanganui as well as our Match Commissioner. The Coastal Challenge Cup carries Garry’s name. Whanganui has lost a great man, but he will be remembered forever. R.I.P Mr Spooner. ~ Dilan Raj
