Stopfordians v Newcastle postponed

This game was postponed following the sudden death from natural causes of club stalwart Colin Hibbert on Friday morning.

Colin had played for the club for well over 30 years and would have played in Saturday’s game. He was a much respected player and in recent years had been particularly proactive in keeping the club going by encouraging everyone to turn out and to follow up leads for new players.

He was an ever-present key member of the Stops’ defence and his level headed approach often provided the calming influence the team needed.

His son Andrew had played for team, his son Peter continues to be a highly valued team member and his wife Cathy has been our most loyal supporter. Our condolences go to them all.
