Don Guy, 1924 - 2015

The funeral took place at Wilford Hill on 25th February at 11:20, then afterwards at the Clubhouse for hockey "teas". 

I'm sorry to have to report the death of Don Guy on Monday, Feb 2nd, at the age of 90, after a short illness.  

Don was a stalwart club servant who epitomised all that is best in amateur sport.  Always one to shun the limelight, he worked hard for the club, mainly behind the scenes, and was always one of the first to introduce himself to new members and to make sure that they felt welcome.  It was hard to persuade him that he should be put forward to be president, an honorary post awarded in recognition of past service, later the club had no hesitation in electing him a life member.  Don was no mean player, carrying on playing well into his 60s, and celebrating his 60th birthday in 1984 by winning the Derby Veterans' Trophy, a prestigious tournament at that time.  I have a memory of playing in a team as a holiday student, where Don scored a rare goal, only to have it disallowed by the umpire - he hit the ball like a rocket, it hit the back stanchion and rocketed out of the goal before the umpire (who shall remain nameless) noticed.  Don didn't complain, he got on with the game.  That was him all over, one of the nicest people it has been my pleasure to know.

Our thoughts and sympathy are with Mary and the family.  We will post details of the arrangements once they are known.
