Tragic Death of Danny Lynham

 It is with enormous sadness that I have to report the tragic death of our ex playing colleague and friend Danny Lynham. Danny played for us for a number of years before moving to Leeds with work, where he became a valuable member of Leeds Hockey Club, getting involved with coaching and playing as those of us who knew him would expect. It is always hard to find reasons for the untimely death of a friend especially when there appears to be no reason why. And indeed Danny was with many of our Club members and friends a short while ago at Dan and Kristy’s' wedding celebrations, apparently in good health and form.

Unfortunately I cannot offer much solace to those of you feeling sad and confused with this news as I feel all those things myself, for the Club to me is much more than just a Hockey Club, and there is a strong bond that forms between people with common interests and ideals, and in that context the tragic loss of a sparkling life who was one of our own is very upsetting. As I write this with a slightly moist keyboard all I can do is be determined to remember a fine young hockey player, full of life and enthusiasm on and off the pitch who was a privilege to have known. Our kind  thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends at this very difficult time. Geoff.

Danny 's funeral took place on Wednesday 12th September in Leeds. The Club sent 14 of his close friends and the thoughts and good wishes of all who knew Danny at the Club. His family asked  that we send no flowers and if anyone feels that they would like to mark his passing in some way that make a contribution to The Young Enterprise Scheme where Danny was a volunteer.
