It is with great sadness that the club informs members that Bryon 'Buddy' Hartwell passed away in the early hours of today (Wednesday 6th February 2019)
Buddy and his late wife Pearl were a huge part of this club over many, many years.
Buddy joined the club after leaving Wellingborough Grammar School in the early 1950's.

He was a 1st XV regular from 1956/57 to 1970's and was the Club Captain in 1965/66 season and still playing 3rd team rugby in the early 1970's.

A great and committed club Life Member and volunteer, he also served as House Committee Chairman and Colts Manager.
Buddy leaves behind his children, grand children and great grandchildren.

The funeral will take place at 13:00 on the 27th February at Wellingborough Crematorium followed by all guests being welcome back at the rugby club afterwards. If possible, please wear any of the club ties and specifically club colours if you have them.
