The best way to keep up to date with King's Rugby - KCS Old Boys RFC


Roy Dawson

1 year ago By Tom Moore

We remember Roy Dawson, a true stalwart of KCS Old Boys RFC.

It is with deep sadness that we must report that former Club Captain and President Roy Dawson has died at the age of 87.

Roy's generation at King's College School was a fine vintage producing several international sportsmen, and whilst Roy never quite hit those heights he was an accomplished cricketer and rugby player in his own right.

After completing his National Service, and attending the École hôtelière in Lausanne, Roy began work in travel industry and remained in the sector throughout his career, working for several firms including BOAC and latterly Inghams where he was Sales Manager for a number of years before retirement.

Roy's love of rugby remained ever present and after serving King's with distinction as a player and Club Captain (1955-57) he subsequently assumed the presidency 1977-79. In addition Roy brought his hospitality management skills to bear, organising and coordinating the bar and catering facilities over many years at both the old and new clubhouses.

Roy's dedication was a tribute to the man and the Club owes him a debt of gratitude for his unwavering commitment on and off the pitch to its success.

The condolences of all those connected with KCS Old Boys go to Roy's family and those who knew him best.
