MIDDLESEX CRICKET MOURNS THE PASSING OF AARON GREEN

Aaron Robert Green

Middlesex cricket is mourning the passing of Aaron Green.

Today, Middlesex Cricket are devastated to announce the news that one of the Club's Disability cricketers, Aaron Green, has passed away, aged just 26.

Aaron joined Middlesex Disability in 2019 after a long time out of the game due to him having a major operation where he had both a heart and lung transplant.

Before his operation he was a part of the England regional centre and a very popular member of that group, whilst also being Captain of the Sussex Disability First Eleven squad.

Aaron left Sussex to pursue his ambitions of playing with his long-time close friend and former regional centre team mate Elliot Brown, who had joined Middlesex.

Aaron had a lot of love and respect for the Sussex set-up but was looking to push his limits as much as he could and was looking for a new challenge - sadly in the two years he was registered as a Middlesex Disability player he was unable to make his debut for the county due to ill health. Despite the long absence, he was always positive that he would be back on a cricket pitch as soon as he could .

Aaron passed away peacefully on the 12th of July 2021, aged just 26, after a long period of illness. Out most sincere thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Julie and his Mum and Dad, Bob and Mandy, and his brother Nathan

Aaron will be sadly missed by all that knew him.

Aaron's passing was marked ahead of the Disability First Eleven fixture that was played this past weekend between Middlesex and Essex, with the players stood and observed a minute's silence in his memory.

Aarons family are setting up a donations page where all proceeds are being donated to Great Ormond street hospital in Aarons name which shows just how amazing Aaron and his family are, thinking of others in their own hour of need.
