Vale Chris Crane

It is with great sadness the Club advises that our secretary Chris Crane passed away in the SAN Hospital on Thursday 17th November after a long, hard-fought battle with bone cancer.

Chris was Western and Hill's secretary for 27 years from 1989.

His unflappable nature made him an invaluable member of the club's event organising teams. He was often the rock that steadied the ship when unforeseen circumstances occurred.

Chris will be missed greatly. The Club's condolences go to Chris's wife, Trisha and son and daughter, Ashley and Adele.
