Sad news at the Wanderers

By Alyn Humphries | 30/07/2017

It is with much regret that the Wanderers have to announce that 2 great club stalwarts have passed away over the course of the last weekend.

Derek Patterson who was for many years club secretary passed away after a long illness last Friday. Derek was an ever present in the Wanderers, a great administrator and he was well known around the Rugby clubs of the area and at the WRU.  A fountain of knowledge if you wanted a fact about many things there was a fair chance the Derek would know the answer or would have some idea where to find it. He will be sadly missed.

The club also has to announce the loss of one time player Marc Henry. Marc played on the wing for the 1st XV during a great period of the Wanderers history. He was taken ill a while ago but fought his illness bravely and he was often seen at the Club watching his son Spencer who himself has been playing for the Wanderers 1st XV. He passed away this morning after he finally lost his fight against illness.   

Details of the funerals will be posted in due course.
