Tributes and condolences continue to pour in following the passing of Glenn Smith Blakeney, who succumbed to cancer just prior to the New Year.

In a statement released by the Progressive Labour Party, a spokesperson said extended the party’s “heartfelt condolences to the Smith and Blakeney families”.

“Glenn was a renowned cricketer of immense talent and commitment.  He represented Bermuda both internationally and locally during his career.  He was a dedicated member of Bailey’s Bay Cricket Club and St. George’s Cup Match team for many years.  His passing leaves a tremendous void in the cricketing community.  

“To his wife Twynika and their three children, to former Minister Glenn Blakeney and wife  Gwen, to his mother Karen, his siblings and his many family and friends , we send our heartfelt condolences.  Our hearts go out to you all during this most difficult time.”

Since his passing, a host of Glenn Blakeney Jr’s colleagues and friends have paid tribute to him as a batsman.

He was diagnosed with kidney cancer in March 2013.

On behalf of Bermuda Real, we extend our sincere condolences to his family, sporting colleagues and friends.
