ALLEYNE, STEPHEN MARK CLARKE, who died of a heart attack on October 15, 2007, aged 47, headed the Barbados organising committee for the 2007 World Cup. Alleyne was an actuary who became president of the Barbados Cricket Association in 2000, and was adamant that the country must play a major role in the first World Cup in the West Indies. He drove the bid to stage the final at Kensington Oval, and oversaw the ground reconstruction that made it possible. He had gone to university in Scotland, and spent several seasons with Edinburgh's Carlton club, opening the batting for Scotland in their 1985 NatWest Trophy cuptie against Glamorgan. The day before he died, he was playing for Empire, his Bridgetown club. Alleyne was often seen as a future president of the West Indian board: Joel Garner, his successor as BCA president, said he had "a brilliant mind". Tony Cozier said his death was "a critical, inopportune loss" at a time when West Indian cricket was so short of dynamic leaders.
