“" Well done to the lads, Pres"”
He had been suffering with Pulmonary Fibrosis, a chronic lung disease and despite this was always happy to be at the Rugby Club and enjoy the sport whilst being amongst friends. He was a caring and compassionate family man looking after his wife Fiona for many years.
Roger was elected President in June and we were very grateful to him for accepting this honour. He has been at the Club for 50 years and progressed from player to 1st XV Captain and to coach, receiving a Club Cap for his endeavours. He has always been a passionate supporter and volunteer.
He had been very poorly for some time and this escalated recently. However, this did not put off Roger from attending matches and the 50th Anniversary at Stelfox Avenue. Even after this, once he was confined to home woe betide if we didn't get him a match report straight after each game, to get the reply " Well done to the lads, Pres".
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time.
The funeral shall take place on Tuesday 20th November at 12.45pm at Altrincham Crematorium followed by drinks at Altrincham Kersal RFC
