In Memory of a Past Club Player & Coach

By Rob Batley

Clive Niccolls R.I.P.

Please see the below from Gareth Niccolls as many of you may have known Clive:

"It is with great sadness that I must report the passing of my Father, Clive Niccolls.

Dad passed away at home with his Family by his side on Friday 21st September after a long illness.

Clive was originally from Manchester but the Navy brought him to Hampshire where he applied his passion for Rugby, playing in the Navy and for Gosport and Fareham RFC. As his joints wore out he turned his passion to coaching where he coached a number of 1st teams in Hampshire including the Navy Colts, Gosport and Fareham RFC, Trojans RFC, Havant RFC and Hampshire U21 to Twickenham.
Beloved Husband to Lynne, Father to Claire & Gareth, Father-in-Law to Martin & Kelly and Grumps to Henry and Eadie. A great story teller who will be missed all of his family and friends.
Funeral will take place at Porchester Crematorium on 19th October at 11:15, followed by a celebration of Clive’s life at the Golden Bowler, PO14 2NQ.

Family Flowers only and Donations to Cancer Research via Rubys Funeral Directors, Lee on Solent."

Thank you

Gareth Niccolls
