He would have been 79 this week. Frank played rugby with Durham City, Bath and Rutland before moving to Harrogate where he played prop forward for Harrogate 1st XV from 1973 to 1976.
He was club secretary from 1982 until 1985 and became club chairman from 2000 to 2006. During his time as chairman he worked tirelessly overseeing the process of the club’s relocation from Claro Road to Rudding Lane.
When he stepped down as club chairman he took on the responsibility for grounds maintenance and also organised the club’s allocation of International tickets.
Frank was a true ‘club’ man, a tremendous worker for the club and a good friend. He will be greatly missed.
