It is with great sadness Blaydon RFC announce the loss of one of our rugby family: John Brennan

John Brennan 1941 – 2019

John sadly passed away in hospital last Wednesday 11th September 2019 after a short illness and will be missed by his many friends at Blaydon where he had reported rugby matches for local newspapers during the past 40 years.

No matter how badly Blaydon had played, John had always by skillful use of words, to make it sound possibly much better than it actually had been.

John will be much missed by all his friends in the back of the stand where every second Saturday the world was put to rights particularly in respect of Blaydon’s current form.

Our condolences are send to his wife Valerie and family at this very sad time.

Details of funeral arrangements will be announced later when available.
