Dennis Webb – Senior Honorary Vice President of Worthing RFC
We have been informed that the Club’s senior Honorary Vice President, Dennis Webb, passed away peacefully on the morning of Monday the 9th July after a long illness.
Dennis will be remembered by many of our older members as a tireless stalwart of the Club, both in our Castle Road years and early years at Roundstone Lane. Organiser of senior fixtures for many year, prior to the advent of leagues and cup competitions, when as fixture secretary Dennis would arrange “friendly” fixtures for up to 6 senior men’s teams from September to April.
We haven’t seen Dennis at the Club, for a number of years, falling out of love with the game to a degree after it went open and fearing the loss of the old amateur days and values. Dennis played in the front row for many years and represented all teams in his playing days. A real gentleman for whom many will have their own fond memories.
Dennis’s funeral is arranged for 11am on the 20th August at the parish church (St Peter and St Paul) in Rustington. All who remember Dennis are welcome.
