Rugby: Two Wins

Old Alleynians 24 Kings 1XV 46 : Kings 2 XV 56 Esher Amateurs 1XV 26

As a preamble to the Internationals our two teams produced entertaining and high scoring games so that both sit in 4th place in their respective leagues. I attach Kelvin’s match report which of course you can find on our web site.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the Past Players Lunch on Saturday. The bar opens at 12 noon!!!

On a sad note I am sorry to inform you that John Clare died 2 weeks ago. It was totally unexpected but he died peacefully. His daughter Emma has sent the following message about funeral arrangements. Please let me know if you intend to attend:

“I wanted to let you know about the funeral arrangements for my Father now that we have finalised them.

We will be at Kingston Crematorium on Wednesday
8th April and the service will commence at 2.20pm.

There will be a wake afterwards at Malden Manor Bowls Club (on Malden Road, in Malden Manor Park, next to the playground) and everyone is more than welcome.

It would be most appreciated if you could send me an approximate number of who might be expecting to attend beforehand if possible.

For general enquiries, we are asking for family flowers only, but if anyone does ask, we are putting any donations in his memory towards a memorial bench in his name which will be placed at the Bowls Club. ”
