Don was a Lecturer at Harrogate College and Leeds Metropolitan. Whilst playing rugby at Harrogate he was Captain of the ‘A’ XV for the 1982/1983 season and Captain of the Veterans XV for 1996/1997.
He was a formidable prop forward and played for Stockton Rugby Club and Harrogate Rugby Club. One of Don’s favourite stories was about the prop with only one arm who was penalised by a referee for not binding in the front row of the scrum.
Don’s Funeral will be held on Thursday 15th November at 1.45 p.m. at Stonefall Crematorium. We send our condolences to his wife and family.
