It's with deep regret that we announce the death of Mike Cockram, the club's 1st XV fly half in the 1970's and the father of our current 1st XV fly half Charlie Cockram.
Mike was a great supporter of the club and would always be found in the same spot at the club's home games, come rain or shine. After the game he'd be found in the bar with a pint of Ringwood Best Bitter chatting to the players about his thoughts on the match.
Mike's funeral will be held at 11am on Tuesday 12 December 2017 at St Peter and St Paul's church in the Market Place in Ringwood and afterwards at the rugby club. The family would like club members to wear club blazers and ties to celebrate Mike's life.
It will be family flowers only, with donations to the Bournemouth Heart Club.
