In Memory of Con de Lange

Northamptonshire players, officials and supporters are shocked and saddened at the death of former County player Con de Lange.
He passed away at the age of 38 after being diagnosed with a brain tumour early last year.
South African-born, Con spent two seasons on the professional staff at Wantage Road - in 2012 and 2013 - and in the first of those summers made 22 first-team appearances in all competitions; four in the County Championship, and nine each in the 40-over Cup and the Twenty20 tournament.
He made his mark with the club as a tidy left-arm spinner, a talented batsman and outstanding fielder - an ideal skill-set for the limited-overs game.
After leaving Northamptonshire, Con headed north to Scotland and made the step up into international cricket.  He played 13 ODIs and eight T20s for Scotland - picking up five wickets in their first-ever ODI victory against a full-member country, Zimbabwe, at Edinburgh in June 2017.  He made his final international appearance a few months later.
Con was highly-respected wherever he played around the cricketing world, and was regarded as a mentor and role model by some of the younger generation of Scottish cricketers.
Everyone at NCCC sends sincerest condolences to his family and friends at his hugely sad time.
