OEs Chairman Nick Burne said: “It was with real sadness that I heard this morning of the death of Peter Mapstone, or Mappy to his friends. I personally have known Peter for around 35 years of which, for about 20 of those years, he was the groundsman at the old Foxbury Sports Ground.
“Pete's first love was cricket but he always used to come and support the rugby club through thick and thin - much of the early years through thin! The last time I saw him was at our final home match of last season at College Meadow when we played Esher - a cheerful smile on his face as always. A loyal, friendly and hard-working club-man, he will be greatly missed.”
Funeral arrangements will be posted on the website as soon as they are available.
