It is with great regret that we have learned of the tragic death yesterday of Tom Hunt of Lincoln College in a car accident. Tom was just 19 years old.
I had the pleasure of managing Tom on the NLD u16 tour to South Africa in 2011 and he was a fantastic lad with a great personality. Tom was a real team guy, a valued tourist who did everything asked of him and was a wholehearted, committed and talented rugby player. The tributes paid to him by his many friends on Facebook say it all really and he will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him.
Our sincere condolences and thoughts go out to his family and friends.
Tom’s funeral will be held on Friday 22nd August at 2.15pm at St Peter’s Church at Woodall Spa.
