Tony Stimpson

It is with deep regret that we have to advise you that Keyworth RFC Club President, Tony Stimpson, has lost his long battle against Leukaemia and passed away in the early hours of Sunday. I’m sure you will join NLD in extending sympathies to Jill and the family at this sad time.

Tony has given great service to NLD and particularly refereeing over the years as well as being a stalwart of Keyworth RFC along with his wife Jill. Many will have known Tony as a referee locally, touch judge at national level in its early days, assessor, advisor, mentor or just as a good friend who would always enjoy a chat about the game.

On Monday 29 September there will be a private cremation followed by a memorial service at the church in Willoughby on the Wolds at midday and then afterwards at The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club, Cotgrave, Nottingham NG12 3HB. All are welcome.
