The best way to keep up to date with Wirral RUFC


Tony Ingham

1 month ago By Andrew Broadbent

The Club is sad to announce the passing of Vice President, Tony Ingham. Tony, who was 68, died on 17th May 2018 after a long battle with cancer.

Tony’s parents moved from Yorkshire in the early 60’s and Tony attended Wirral Grammar School for Boys.

Tony was a stalwart of the club during the 70’s and early 80’s playing rugby for many of the sides, including the legendary Ginty’s Guerillas.

Tony was an electrician by trade and utilized his many skills by spending long hours doing unpaid work on the upkeep of the clubhouse. As a consequence of his commitment and contributions Tony was made a life Vice-President of the Club and continued to attend annual dinners and past players lunches until shortly before his death.

Tony and his wife Sally lived in Capenhurst in a cottage they renovated together and lived there for nearly 40 years.

Tony will be sadly missed by all who knew him and the Club sends their sincere condolences to Sally, who incidentally served on the clubs social committee for many years
