Don truly was one of the greats of York RUFC. He was one of the first to welcome me into the club. When taking on the chair role he gave me plenty of advice and tips about the club. He looked after his VPs like brothers and sisters – and he did always refer to them as his VPs. However, my fondest memories come from him inviting me over to “coffin corner” to tell stories of his wonderful adventures on and off the field.
He will be sadly missed.
