It is with sadness that one of the great icons of our League, Donna Butterworth, passed away on August 15th. She was an absolute legend, as a Player, Captain and Committee Member. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

Donna played in many teams over 30 years, including the Turf Hotel and the Staff of Life, and she brought with her a sense of humour and a love of the game like no other. As a Committee Member since 1992, she always wanted the best for the League. She was forthright and honourable, and was never scared of letting you know where you stood (in an amiable way). The effort and work that Donna put in over years was phenomenal, as she was instrumental in bringing changes that brought the game forward in so many ways. Both Donna and Mick ran the County teams for many years, indeed many Players in the League will look back at those times with fond memories of Radcliffe & Bury League players taking the County scene by storm in the 1990's. Donna also won many trophies herself, and rarely let the Mixed Doubles Trophy out of her grasp.

The funeral service took place in Little Lever on Friday September 1st, and was attended by many Players, past and present, who paid their respects to a greatly respected member of the League.

Rest In Peace, Donna Butterworth, Wife, Mother, Player, Captain & Knockout Administrator. Our thoughts are with Donna's family at this time.
