It is with deep sadness that we report the recent death of Ico Bassi.
Ico has been living in Acton, West London for many years, but was a keen supporter of the club all-be it from a distance. An aggressive second row forward he was contemporary in the club with Frank Dullehan, John Farr and myself, playing first team rugby from the mid fifties into the sixties. He also played at Gloucester and after moving to London, London Welsh. At the Welsh he coached their Colts team for some years and Tom Shanklin the Welsh International started his rugby life in a team coached by Ico. His funeral service is at Ealing Abbey on Thursday 13th June
