It is with sadness that we announce the passing of former First XV prop Anthony (Tony) Booth, aged 75.
Tony made 310 appearances for the First XV between 1965 and 1980 and also played for Yorkshire.
Tony was a big character and an all round sportsman. After switching from Rugby Union, Tony enjoyed a spell as prop forward for Fartown. He was also a keen golfer and crown green bowler.
Our condolences go to Tony’s wife Michelle plus all of his family and friends. Funeral arrangements will be posted in due course.
