It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Roger Mitchell yesterday (Thursday).  For the newer members of the club, Roger was a long term member who had served as club fixtures secretary for several years, as well as being a constant in the Men’s A Team.  He had been fighting illness for some time, and finally had to withdraw from membership this season and spent the past few weeks in respite care.
