I received the following message on Wednesday 24th January, 2018, from Paul Browning ….

I have the sad task to inform you that Steve Wright passed away last night, Tues 23rd Jan 2018.

Rich Radcliffe & I visited Steve in hospital about 2 weeks ago. He told us then that he had a prognosis of 3-6 months, but became increasingly unwell in recent days. Joy, Rich & I had planned to visit him this weekend to say our Farewells, as Simon Edwards (another rugby mate)  had visited Steve on Mon 22nd January and reported that Steve was very frail and might not last much longer.

Many of you will know that Steve battled with cancer for more than a decade and those of us who knew him over those years were always impressed with the stoicism and good humour with which he faced his illness. Steve played for the club during the 70’s and 80’s and was a committee member for 15 years.
