Derek Sly

We are sad to learn of the passing of Derek Sly. ¬†Derek was a past Captain of an extremely successful Spalding First XV in the early 1960’s and was renown as a forthright no nonsense player who expected nothing but the best from his players. He also later became a prominent supporter of the club both on the touchline and through kind contributions to the running of the club.

The funeral will be held on Friday 30th September at 11.30am at:

Thorney Abbey
Abbey place
Thorney
PE6 0QD

Our thoughts are with Derek’s family at this very sad time.
