It is with the deepest regret that I have to announce the passing of our esteemed colleague of over 50 years Jim Simms, Past President, Trustee and Life Member.
Jim gave a lifetime of service to our Club. He managed the 1st XV during one of its most successful periods when they won the Towns Cup and the Junior Cup and made it to the final of the Senior Cup. He led the very successful Sevens Committee for 16 years during which time the event was expanded from a Saturday tournament to full weekend festival of rugby. He will be sadly missed not only by ourselves but by many in the rugby community throughout Ulster.
Our deepest sympathies go to his wife Jean, our esteemed colleague Michael and the entire family circle.
