200 Club – March Winners

In these unprecedented times, there is another way Members and friends can help out the Club finances. For many years now, we have been running a “200 Club”. The aim is to get 200 people to put in £4 / month into a Club “lottery”. There will then be cash prizes paid out each month and the remainder of the money will go into Club Funds. At present we have around 120 Members of the “200” Club and are looking to expand this up to the 200 target. If you could spare £4 / month, we would be delighted to enrol you in the 200 Club and you will be in line for monthly prizes of £100, £50 and £25. There is an additional prize of £250 every 6 months (2 per year, drawn in June and December). If we can get the numbers up to 200, we can increase […]

Barry Richardson

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing of another past player and friend of the Club, Barry Richardson. Another old boy of the Club, Phil Stott has penned these memories of Barry: Barry was my friend. I met him at the rugby Club about 40 years ago. He was a skinny 17-year-old who couldn’t get a game on the colts. Pep brought him to me one day and asked if I could help get him some game time. Of course, I could get him some game time, we were the fourth team, and we were always short of players. Barry was in and he thrived. He grew in confidence and stature and became a pretty good rugby player. He was never going to bother the England selectors, but no one could deny his passion and enthusiasm for the game. He became, what you would call, […]

Howard Morgan

It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of one of the older Members of the Club, Howard Morgan. Our sympathies go out to his family and friends at this very sad time. Dermot O’Connor, a long time friend of Howard, has penned this biopic of Howard: “Howard was a loved and respected Player and long-time friend of Sedgley Park. He was a hugely opoular character, fondly known as ‘H’, with a mischevious smile. He was a generous soul and a compassionate man, but with a total lack of common sense. This surfaced when he took myself and Mick Harris into his house as Lodgers!! The house was opposite Prestwich Hospital and I am not sure which side of Bury New Road needed the most treatment. Howard was a very handsome man (some would say), intelligent, fluent in French and a Quantity Surveyor. Howard played at […]
