John Le Lievre (5926), one of Guernsey’s sporting legends sadly passed away. John will be well remembered for winning 16 senior caps in squash for England between 1977-1982 having previously representing England at junior level. John was a multi-pronged sportsman and in 1974, at the age of 18, won his place in the senior Island cricket team that pulled off its best-ever result against Jersey - a 10 wicket win at FB Fields. John was a handy hockey player and down at the L’Ancresse links, he also became a highly capable golfer who just fell short of making the full island team lowering his handicap to 2. John was inducted onto Guernsey’s Sporting Heroes List in 2016.
