It is with sadness that we report the death of Brad Downing

It is with sadness that we report the death of Brad Downing in Holland at the age of 60 from COPD.

Brad, a Yorkshire man, played at scrum half. Brad's father has sent a newspaper clipping (see below) entitled 'Downing Back and Wanstead Open Account' a report of a game against Pinner where Brad scored all of the points in a 6 - 12 victory. Members of the team that day included Martin Baker, Mick Chandler, Pete Cristofoli, Ian Kenlin, Alan Blurton, Pete Jacobs, Tony Crickmore, John Bobsin, Tim Strong, Trevor Stadhart along with veterans Merrick Jones and Roly Davies.

Our condolences to his family.
