Some very sad News - Jimmy Gallagher recently past away.

Good friend and valued member of the Association Jimmy Gallagher recently passed away. Jim had been suffering illness for a couple of years and died surrounded by his family. He leaves wife Betty and two daughters.

Jim was the dashing overlapping 1st XI right back in the 1980s. His friends will remember his incredible fitness, great sense of humour, captivating smile; he was good company too. Jim attended Clapham College from 1970 to 1977 - where he was a stalwart of Walsingham House.

Jim's funeral was held on Wednesday 14 June, St Edmund of Canterbury Church, Village Way, Beckenham.

Charlotte Gallagher (Jim' daughter) has sent a link to a Cancer Research UK fund raising page in memory of Jim
