It is with sadness that the club announce the loss of Jim Hurst on Sunday 22nd March

Update: Jim’s funeral is on Tuesday 7th April 1.30pm at Sunderland Crematorium, afterwards at the Rosedean

Jim played many games in Blaydon colours, was 1st team Captain and following his playing career helped develop ‘junior colts’ rugby at Blaydon RFC. Many of those colts remember Jim fondly, at the side line creating a one man crowd with his booming voice. If you slacked during the game, boy did you hear about it. Rest in Peace.

Jim was well known, with many friends from Blaydon RFC.

Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
