R.I.P Dr David Webster – a.k.a Doc

Please see the photo above. This should tell you everything you need to know about the man whose life we are celebrating. Doc wrote and signed this note before he passed away, and put it in an envelope with £200 to go behind the bar. His widow Lindsay gave it to me yesterday.

That simple action totally encapsulates his character: courage, foresight, kindness, a mischievous sense of fun, and of course a dry sense of humour. If we care about who we are as people and as a club we will all turn out to honour a man who loved our game and our club.

All club members, and players from both 1st and 2nd teams are invited and encouraged to join together in a minutes silence before the 1stxv match kick off at 3:00. After the matches we will join together at the bar to celebrate the memory of Dr David Webster, OMRFC Club Chairman 2000-2014, 1stxv Skipper 1975-1976.
