CHRIS GILLHAM RIP

The sad news just keeps on coming at the moment. Today we lost our very dear friend, former President, Chris Gillham after a lengthy and brave fight against cancer.

Chris was the heart and soul of Norwich Rugby Club, dedicated, hard working, generous and entertaining in equal measure. The clubhouse will feel so empty without his charismatic preence and cultured voice. he will be sorely missed by everyone that knew him.

He was held in cult status by the senior Squad, being supportive and encouraging, even when things were not going so well. he was one of a small and dedicated group that followed them to away games and could always be relied upon to put things into perspective over a pint in the bar, or red wine in his case.
 
The senior players introduced him to the art of Beer Pong just a few months ago and he turned out to be rather good at it. 
 
We will construct a proper obituary for Chris in due course. For now, the club family simply extend their heartfelt condolences to Christine and the rest of C.J's family. He will be missed beyond measure. RIP.

MIKE 'BOYO' EVANS - RIP

It is with the greatest sadness that we report the death or Mike ‘Boyo’ Evans who passed away aged 84, unexpectedly in his sleep last night. Mike joined Norwich RFC in the 1960’s when he was stationed locally in the RAF. He played for the club when we were at the Fifers Lane ground and when he retired from playing, was involved in running the 1st XV.

An utterly charming and gentle man, Mike was a hugely popular character at the club and a regular presence at 1st XV games until very recently and much loved by Senior players that had enjoyed his support for many years.
 
Reflecting on his passing, former President Roy Bishop said “My buddy at the front of the bus when we looked after the First Team together, my buddy when I ran Norwich Colts and always needed a referee, my buddy when we played in the A and Extra A together, my buddy who never forgot my birthday even though I never remembered his, my buddy at the bar. I will miss him terribly.
 
Deepest sympathy to his wife Maureen and the rest of his family.

Rest in peace, Mike.

Norwich 15 Amersham & Chiltern 28 - 23/04/2022

Norwich’s final game of the season ended in defeat but they put in a far better performance than of late, which is what the coaches were looking for. It charted a big improvement from the away game at Amersham and Chiltern at the start of the season though they will rue some missed opportunities and a high penalty count. Norwich weathered an early onslaught from Amersham but scored first on 12 minutes with some good work by the backs down the left wing when Ollie Emanuel kicked ahead and B.....
