Enda Roper - RIP (updated 7/1/19).

4 weeks ago By Pat Stokes

It is with much sadness that the club has heard that long-standing club member Enda Roper passed away on Sunday 16th December .....

after a long illness. Enda played for the club in the 70s/80s and early 90s and it’s right to describe him as a club legend; a fierce competitor on the field and a real gent and great company off the pitch. All of us who played a game or two with him, shared a few pints and many laughs with him are going to miss him even though he’s not been at the club in recent years. Some years ago Enda had moved to Suffolk to be closer to his immediate family. The club sends its condolences to Enda’s family and friends. RIP Enda Roper.

Picture attached – Enda captain of the 2nd XV Team 1983-84.

Enda's funeral (immediate family) takes place on 10th January in Suffolk. The internment of Enda’s ashes with his late wife Marilyn at Altrincham Crematorium and a wake thereafter will take place in late January / early February , date to be confirmed .
