Playing rugby in the community since 1883

John Clayton – R.I.P.

We are sorry to report the sad news of the death of John Clayton. John was obviously a big name in the refereeing world and had assessed several of our games this season. He was also the man who we had to contact to appoint referees for junior cup games.

We hear he suffered a massive a heart attack last week and had been in an induced coma thereafter. Any messages of condolence should be sent to Michele, his stepdaughter, at

I’m sure all our thoughts are with his wife, Pat, and his family.
