Fred Jones

14 November 2022

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Fred Jones.

Fred has served the League loyally over very many years, he was the Assistant Secretary for 35 years with his main responsibities being the maintenance of results and league tables and the preparation of trophies and medals for Presentation Nights.

He originally started playing for Oakapples in 1960 but later switched to the Black Lion, later called Richmond Lions, when invited by the Landlord, Tony Clifton. Fred took over the captaincy when Tony retired and continued until he recently ceased playing. From 1985 until 2000 he was also captain of the Three Cities team.

Our condolences go to the family who would appreciate privacy at this sad time.
