Anthony (Horsley 1959-65) attended Cranbrook, where his life long passion for cricket was fostered, alongside his love of steam trains. He qualified as a chartered surveyor, working locally and also for a while in Gloucestershire, before returning to Sussex.

He married and had three children, Claire Timothy and Victoria. His wife, Ruby, died six years ago. Joyously he married again last summer but cruelly was then struck down with Covid 19, just 8 months later. He died on Easter Saturday. He leaves behind his wife Marlyn, his three children and five grandchildren whom he adored.
