We Regret to announce the Passing of Judy Close

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing of Judy Close.

Judy was a long time supporter of Macclesfield Rugby Club going back many years to the days at Tytherington, right through until her recent illness.  Judy was married to former Macclesfield player,  past President and Hon. Life member Tony Close,  Mum to Richard who also played at Macc, and Julia who is our Social Secretary.  

Our thoughts go out to Tony, Richard, daughters Julia & Anna, stepson Jonathan,  along with grandchildren Jessica, Lara, Daisy, Molly & Ella at this sad time.  We will be holding a one minute’s silence prior to kick off on Saturday when the flag will be flown at half-mast.

 Judy`s funeral will be held on Friday 8th March at 10 am at Pott Shrigley Church, then down to the Crematorium for 11.20, followed drinks and food at the Masonic Hall – All are welcome.
