Geoff Murch R.I.P

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Geoff has passed away. He died peacefully at his home last Friday.

Geoff was a long standing member of the Society and more recently a watcher for the us and the Federation. He could often be found at one of his favourite clubs, Veseyans RFC.

Geoff always seemed to have a smile on his face and just was good company, a proper rugby man.

Condolences have been sent to his family.

Details of his funeral have still to be settled.

Geoff, you will be missed.

Kelvin Roberts

Chair of the Society

  1. This is indeed a sad day – I came across Geoff on many occasions while I was geographically based in the North Mids (I have been away now for about four years, so my connections are now somewhat disconnections!)

    A lovely man, and always ready to have a natter about rugby as well as other matters.

    RIP Geoff. I hope you didn’t suffer much before your passing.


  2. Sorry to hear of Geoff’s passing Another stalwart has been lost to Rugby and, indeed, refereeing. I do hope that ,Covid permitting, we can give him the send off that is his due after many long years of service. May he rest in peace.. Steve Hindson

  3. A true gentleman with a dry sense of humour. He was my Mr. Reliable in the 90s when doing mid week games over many seasons. He will be missed by all who knew him.
