RIP William (Billy) Flanagan

The club was sad to hear of the passing of club stalwart Billy Flanagan recently a mainstay of the club for over four decades.  

As our groundsman for many years he was pivotal in developing our club grounds as they are today.  Billy also officiated at numerous club events over the decades as official race starter.  As a Club Trustee for thirty three years the work that Billy put in should never be forgotten.  

Our club will always be indebted to Billy and the golden generation of volunteers who have progressed the club to what you see today.
