It is with deep regret that the club announce the death of former captain Barrie Williams.

Barrie made an amazing 249 appearances for the town between 1958-67. He played most of his rugby on the wing, amassing a stunning 126 tries, making him the joint second (with D.P. Rogers) highest ever try scorer in the club's history. He took over the club captaincy for the 1960-61 season, leading another great year.

A very talented sportsman having been a county tennis and squash player, Barrie was equally at home on a court as well as a rugby pitch.

As with many former players, Barrie remained a loyal supporter of the Blues after he finished playing and regularly attended the club's social functions and matches when he could.

The Club wishes to extend their deepest sympathy to Barrie's wife Sheena and all his family at this sad time. He will be greatly missed at Goldington Road.

A private funeral will take place on Friday 6th January 2017 for family only, but all are welcome to pay their respects at Aldwickbury Golf Club, Harpenden from 3.30pm, eulogies will be read at 4pm.
