The best way to keep up to date with Wimborne RFC


John Sharkey (1935 - 2016) R.I.P.

6 months ago By WRFC Web Admin

We are sad to learn of the passing of John Sharkey at the age of 81 following a long illness.

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of John Sharkey. John had lived in south London for some time after moving away from Wimborne and remained an integral part of the London Welsh Choir with whom he continued to sing. Indeed it was his assistance that led to the choir giving their wonderful sell-out recital in the Minster all those years ago. John was a stalwart member and great servant of Wimborne Rugby Club where he enjoyed playing in the Veterans after their formation back in the mid eighties and went on to captain that side very successfully.
John you will be greatly missed.
