Halbro North West Leagues Providing grass roots rugby since 2002


It is with great sadness and many sympathies that we have to announce the passing of our good friend Mr. Craig Ross. We were informed on Friday evening that Craig was seriously ill and he, himself asked for someone to fulfil his duties with Division 5 West over the weekend.

He was a valued member of our Committee, for the past 3 seasons and worked hard week in week out to produce 5 West as being one of the most successful of our Leagues as a whole.

He will be missed by all members of 5 West as he worked non-stop in his efforts to get games played, reliably, and made many friends through his contacts with that League, with his diligence in running the What’s App Group.

We know he was a valued member of the Kendal Club and that they will miss all his enthusiasm and his attraction to detail.

He will be missed by your Committee where he was again as above a much valued member, with his detailed computer skills but also his enthusiasm to be involved in all aspects of the Leagues organisation.

We pass on our sympathies to Jackie his wife and all his family where he will be sorely missed.

Funeral details will be circulated when we are notified.

Fred Swarbrick…
