Mike Sanders, RIP

We are deeply saddened to advise our members of the recent untimely and sad passing of Mike Sanders at the age of 75.

Mike was a great friend of Accies, being a former President of our neighbours, Edinburgh Northern RFC, and a lifelong supporter of The Wooden Spoon Society. Mike was a larger than life character who epitomised all that is good about our great sport of rugby and his passion and friendship will be sorely missed.

Given the current restrictions on public gatherings, only Mike’s immediate family will be able to attend his funeral at Mortonhall Crematorium on 14 April. However, we are hopeful that a memorial service can be arranged at a later date to celebrate a life well lived and we will let members have details when they are available.

Memorial donations can be made in Mike’s memory to The UK Sepsis Trust.

Our thoughts are with Mike's family and friends at this difficult time.
