Newport 4th X1

He was a true stalwart of the club, playing, coaching and  working tirelessly for the benefit of the club over many years.

Tom had a real passion for coaching, helping to organise coaching sessions and running Junior teams.
Whether it be playing, coaching or working, nothing was ever too much for Tom.

Despite his long standing illness he often visited the club and watched all the Newport teams with great enthusiasm.

Tom  will be deeply missed.

Deepest Sympathy's to mum and dad (Anne & Dai), who so fondly cared for him until the end!
RIP Tom
