Last week we lost one our long standing players, Stuart Allen. Stuart had played in the league for 40 years or so, and was a former RDPL Individual Champion & Doubles Champion. To anyone that didn't know Stuart, he played the game with a good spirit and was a tough opponent, who was gracious in defeat and humble in victory. To anyone that did know him, the news has come as a massive shock as Stuart was such an amiable chap, and well respected amongst his fellow players. He played for many years for the New Inn, Radcliffe before switching to the Staff Of Life, and later the New Swan, where he was again part of a very successful team.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time. RIP Stuart Allen.
