Northumberland Rugby Union are very sorry to pass on the sad news that Wes Dixon passed away on Sunday night after a brave battle with cancer.
Wes was a very well respected Past President of the County and of Ponteland RFC. He served on many County Committees and he was the driving force in ensuring that our seriously injured players were looked after during their rehabilitation, no matter how long that took.
Wes will be particularly remembered by the local rugby community as the welcoming face in Ponteland’s clubhouse and for his affable demeanour in everything that he did for rugby.
Our sincere condolences go to Carol and family and to the many colleagues and friends that Wes had across the rugby community.
