Hundreds due to pay respects to star Tom
The family of cricket star Tom Maynard have paid an emotional thank you to well-wishers ahead of his funeral.
Former Millfield School pupil Mr Maynard died earlier this month after being hit by a London Underground train.
The ex-Glamorgan and Surrey batsman is to be laid to rest in his home town of Cardiff – with hundreds expected to turn out to pay their last respects.
His family said they were still reeling from the tragedy, but have gained comfort in the messages of support they have received.

A family spokesman said: "Matthew, Sue and Ceri would like to reiterate their thanks to everyone for the many hundreds of cards, letters, emails and messages they have received following the tragic death of their son Tom.
"The level of support has been of real comfort to them."
Mr Maynard – the son of former Glamorgan cricket legend Matthew Maynard – was regarded by many as one of the sport's bright prospects.
In 2007, on his Glamorgan First XI debut he hit 71 runs from 75 balls – and was later snapped up by Surrey.
