Farewell to John Oates

Mon 25th of June at 11:14 am

As many of you would be aware, it has been a sad couple of days for everyone at the club following Oatsie’s passing last Friday. 

No amount of words can describe what he meant to all of us. He was a larger than life character, full of goodwill and good humour and generous with his time and commitment to both the senior and junior clubs. 

We want to give Oatsie a fitting send off so we will farewell him in style this Friday at De Winton Park.

Starting at noon, there will be a short family tribute to celebrate the life and times of Oatsie and, in keeping with his wishes, it’s then time to party. Oastie and Peta had requested a celebration and we will do that with lots of funny stories, videos, photos and a few drinks and eats to take us through the afternoon.

That means a relaxed dress code but if you want to look dapper like Oatsie always did then that is fine!

Hope to see as many of you as possible on Friday.
