To honour the memory of Berkley “the professor” Caesar and the significant contribution he made to the Stockholm Cricket Club we have named the fund in his honour.
Berkley was a steadfast member of the Stockholm Cricket Club. It was through his skills and ability with both bat and ball he earn the nickname “the professor” as he demonstrated to others how the game should be played. On the field he was the vice-captain of the team for many years, and played in all the tours - to Netherlands, England, Germany and Finland. Off the field he was a selector and worked in the Social Committee, which was a focal point of the cricketing community in Stockholm at the time.
