With sadness we announce the death of Les Davidson, a long standing member of MFC and a former Chair of Rugby.

Les was a great character, full of energy and a great story teller. He would often hold Court until the early hours nursing various drinks and then be up, bright and breezy, at the crack of dawn, ready to start again. There are so many of us who have been thoroughly entertained when in his company. God speed Les.

Les passed away on Wednesday (27th) in Turkey. It seems that he was taken ill on holiday and required admission. Unfortunately the hospital will not release him for repatriation until his medical bill has been paid. I understand it is some £15,000. Two of his pals at Disley Golf Club have created a crowdfund on JustGiving :
