SAD NEWS: SUDDEN DEATH OF DAVE PRINCE

DAVE PRINCE R.I.P.

It’s with heavy heart I report that my friend, club mate and fellow reporter Dave Prince died suddenly yesterday evening.

I’ve known Dave for well over twenty years and over the years I suppose we have visited most of the grounds in Yorkshire. In recent times he had done his share of note taking and reporting in all weathers around the Yorkshire league grounds. 

Going back to 1996 he completely took over my press duties when I was out of action for over a year with cancer and had many amusing tales to tell of his time as a live reporter for Yorkshire Coast Radio. I will always be grateful to him for that. He was also for a while the Scarborough RUFC fixture secretary.

The last time I talked to him was yesterday afternoon at Scarborough Rugby Club whilst we were watching the England-Wales game. And it’s good to know that the last game he watched saw his beloved England put one over on the old enemy.

R.I.P Dave.
