Sad News at the Club

It is with great sadness that I have to report the passing of our friend and Club Mate Andrew ‘Bill’ Bunce

‘Billy’ played more than 600 games for the ‘Phones’ in a career that spanned nearly 30 years. During his time at the Rugby Club he had spells as Club Captain and Chairman as well as playing a leading role in the establishment of the Junior Stockwood Sharks (BTA Juniors), which flourished under his guidance.

In his final role as BTRA Chairman he was key in ensuring the club ran smoothly and delivered grass roots rugby and football for all.

A great ‘Clubman’ known and liked by all, always with a cheeky grin and a smile on his face – he will be sadly missed.

His funeral will be at Bristol South Crematorium on Thursday 1st December 2016 at 3pm and a celebration of his life will be held at the Club afterwards. All that knew him are welcome to attend.

Will always remember and never forget you – look after yourself up there brother and keep smiling!
