Other Senior Rugby / RIP Ken Anderson - Scarborough RUFC Chairman
« on: February 13, 2021, 06:26:25 PM »
Sadly our Chairman, Ken Anderson passed away peacefully last night after a short illness. Some of you may have known Ken through business or rugby.

The official statement reads:

It is with great sadness and a very heavy heart that we must inform you of the death of Club Chairman, Ken Anderson who died in the early hours of this morning.

Ken played a very active part in the Club's management right up to his death and as well as being the current Club Chairman and a Vice-President, Ken was a former Club President.

Ken had served on the Club's Board for more than 17 years and brought a wealth of knowledge and business experience which helped guide and shape the Rugby Club into what you see today. His passion for the sport of rugby union and for Scarborough Rugby Club will be sorely missed and his contributions to Club life will never be forgotten.

Due to the current national lockdown restrictions we are presently unsure of any further arrangements but will update all members once we have any more detail.

Our deepest sympathy and prayers are extended to Liz and all Ken's family and friends.

That's very sad to hear and condolences from all at Scarborough.

Regarding sharing sad news, even in these fractured times, shouldn't be seen as insensitive. As a rugby family it enables us all to remember people we may have only known through rugby and from the touchline.

It's a sad fact that when we do get back to 'normality' there will be a number of familiar faces missing when visiting other clubs.

I've been starting to think that after all this has gone away, people may have much greater appreciation for things that were previously taken for granted. Maybe the decline in traditional team sports will reverse.

Next season will be the same structure as when we last played. However the results of next season will be used to place teams in the new structure for season 22/23.

I think most of us have always expected the league programme to be cancelled.

Right...now for a bit of optimism. Remember in summer after the first phase fizzed out how cases dropped to around zero very quickly. There is every chance that the same may happen after Christmas PLUS it seems very likely that a vaccine in some capacity will be started to role out from Christmas time.

Factor in the number of people who have developed some form of immunity....

My bold claim is that we could have two months of friendlies from mid March.

Clearly not guaranteed but that's what I'm expecting with a good dollop of hope.

Come on Red. Top chap that BRB undoubtedly is, you must remove his sturgeons points (or maybe let him keep the +7, foregone conclusion imo) otherwise we can all be wise after the event!!!!
We don't want this predictions league to turn into one of skullduggery. lol.
Good luck to all and I trust you are all in good form.

(Good point Flaggy. We'll hold the issue in abeyance for now and put it to a people's vote should there be any issues at the end of the competition. RH)

As there's me putting a few quid into Flaggys Craven pocket by currently being in a cottage near Grassington!

Visited Wharfedale RUFC yesterday ((first time) and tbh was stunned at the paucity of facilities.... They've done well to sustain the level they have done.
