Simon Sterling RIP

We have today heard the very sad news of the death of Simon Sterling at home in South Croydon.

Simon was a very popular member of Purley John Fisher Rugby Club and avid supporter of London Irish. He was very well known to very many Old Boys and will be sadly missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Simon's Funeral will be held at 12 noon at The John Fisher Chapel on Tuesday, 30th October 2007.
Burial at Greenlawn Memorial Park , Chelsham Road , Warlingham, Surrey CR6 9EQ
and after at Purley John Fisher RFC, Parson's Pightle, Old Coulsdon, Surrey , CR5 1EE

Simon, "Skippy" to Purley John Fisher and the Local Rugby fraternity, was a regular supporter of London Irish with whom his other nickname was ‘Clonmel’. If you have time to look at the link below you can view their supporter’s website where there are some nice comments and pictures…..,8450243

Thank you from Simon Sterling's Family

I have been asked by Simon Sterling's family to extend their heartfelt thanks to all the Old Boys who attended Simon's funeral, who made donations to the British heart foundation and who, in their words, "gave him such a fitting send off".

The School Chapel was overflowing, not just with family and Old Boys but with many from other Rugby clubs and the locality and was a tribute to the way that people felt about Skippy.
