Sad to report the loss of JAN WEBSTER, Honorary Life Member at Walsall Rugby Club.

Jan had a heart attack on Wednesday 6th February and sadly died later on in hospital.

Jan has been a huge part of Walsall RFC for over 50 years as a player, captain, active member, running the club shop, coach to many players, with words of wisdom for all. He always found the positive in everybody he dealt with from the youngest player to the oldest.

He was still a hugely active member of Walsall Rugby Club, where he started and finished his playing career and, as I’m sure you’re aware, also played for Moseley and was a member of the England teams who beat South Africa in 1972 and New Zealand in 1973 in their home countries, playing a significant role in both games


A true gentleman and rugby legend, he will be sorely missed by his many friends at both Walsall and Moseley.
