In memoriam: John Somers

We regret to report that another good friend of Minety Rugby Club has passed away…

Thursday 29 October – Andrew Somers writes:

It is my very sad duty to inform you that my father John Somers sadly passed away yesterday afternoon aged 69, after a brave battle against cancer that he couldn’t win. He died peacefully at home with my Mother Marilyn, my brother David, my sister Gillie and a bottle of Jameson by his side. Dad was landlord of the Flying Monk pub in Malmesbury from 1967-1984, which was a second home of Minety players in the late 70’s and early 80’s. He is also a former vice-president and a great ‘newspaper’ supporter of the club. He will be very sorely missed by all who knew him.”

Our condolences and very best wishes to Andrew and all his family at this sad time.
