John Davies (JD) RIP

John Davies or JD, as he was always known to all at the Club, sadly passed away last week; he had been suffering from cancer for some time, but a recent broken femur was followed by a fatal chest infection.

JD joined Macclesfield in the early ‘60s, then moving over to play at Wilmslow, along with his long time pal and neighbour Barry Limb, John Webster and John Robinson. Barry recalls: “JD played firsts and seconds then, he wasn’t quite sure whether he was a prop, back row or centre”. Besides rugby JD was a keen cricketer/follower, joining in with the boisterous Barmy Army. In recent years he had been a staunch supporter at Macclesfield RUFC, regularly holding court on the stand with his pals. JD had strong political views, which he was quite willing to share with you and was very active in Macclesfield political life; he will have been well chuffed when we finally left the European Union!

We will miss his huge grin beaming out from the stand at Priory Park; we send our deepest sympathies to his wife Shirley son Jonathan and daughter Samantha.
