We are saddened to announce the passing of former Club President Barrie Starbuck on September 29th, aged 86. We would like to pass our condolences on to his wife Jane and the rest of his family and friends.

Barrie was Huddersfield RUFC President from 1987 to 1988 and as well as being Club Historian, he was a big part of organising Club Centenary celebrations in 2009.

Unfortunately due to Government rules only a limited number of invited family and friends will be able to attend the funeral. However, the cortege will pass through Lockwood Park at 12.45pm on Friday 9th October for anyone to gather socially distanced and pay their respects.

Barrie will be sadly missed by everyone at the club.
