It is with great sadness that we have to report that Dudley Gibbs passed away on Friday night, with his family at his side.
As many of you know, Dudley was an extraordinary and dedicated servant to rugby union right up until the end. As current President and County Rep for West End RFC, he also previously held many Northumberland Rugby positions over the years, having been NRU President and also heavily involved with the NRU Rules and North Competitions Committees.
More details regarding the funeral arrangements will be forthcoming shortly.
He will be sorely missed and we send our sincerest condolences to his family. Perhaps you could raise a glass of red wine in his memory as we are sure he would very much appreciate that!
