Club member has passed away

It is with very great sadness that we announce the passing away of Ian Cox at the weekend after his battle with cancer. Ian was a Life Member of Olney RFC, having served the club for many years both on and off the field.

A fine scrum half, he represented Bedford RUFC, Northampton, Buckinghamshire and the East Midlands, as well as his home club of Olney. In the 1970s, he helped set up the mini rugby section at Olney, starting out with just 7 boys! He was so proud of how that section of the club has grown over the years.

Our thoughts are with his wife Jane, his family and friends at this sad time. Ians funeral will be held at St Peter and St Paul church in Olney on November 2nd at 12 noon
