THERE will be a bar stool empty at the Wykeham Arms in Winchester this weekend after the death of Vince Broderick.

The 90-year-old former professional cricketer was a regular at the watering hole for more than 50 years.

He started frequenting the Kingsgate Street pub in 1960 while teaching cricket at Winchester College nearby.

Earlier this year he celebrated his 90th birthday and also a half century of being a Wykeham Arms regular.

Mr Broderick, a widower and father of two and great-grandfather of four from Colden Common, died on Sunday.
