Sad news that John Clayton of Hull has died over the weekend following a heart attack. John is known to most of us through his involvement in refereeing and recently refereeing assessment. It was a lovely chap who will probably be known at most clubs.

Very sad news indeed. I came across John on a number of occasions in my refereeing days. A really good bloke. Condolences to his family from all at Heath RUFC.

Sad. John was a decent guy. Knew him outside of Rugby in our (very) young days, later when he was at I's (Hessle for me) and then both of us as Refs.
