February 5, 2021

Gary Fray was this year’s honouree at the fifth annual Knights Charity Golf Tournament, with Richard Knights making a presentation.

A spokesperson said, “Richard Knights of Knights Charity Golf Tournament made a presentation to Mr. Gary Fray, long serving President of Warwick Workman’s Club for his contribution to sports in Bermuda.

“In his younger years, Gary Fray was an accomplished cricketer who grew up in Dock Hill Community and began at Devonshire Recreation Club as a junior before his family moved to Hillview near Warwick Park. The influence of a sports club within a community cannot be overstated, and with Warwick Park being the home field of Warwick Workman’s Club, the legend of Gary Fray began.

“Gary Fray enjoyed an outstanding club career as an athlete for Warwick Workman’s Club and was rewarded with selection into Cup Match for Somerset Cricket Club. But it was a milestone century in Barbados while on tour with Somerset CC that is Gary Fray’s crowning moment, a feat against a team that consisted of legendary West Indian test players Charlie Griffiths, Wes Hall, and Seymour Nurse.
