We regret to inform you that Paula Rutter, a long standing member of the Club and wife of Club stalwart Del has sadly passed away.
Del met Paula at the Rectory Field in the 70’s when she worked behind the bar and he was playing for the 1st XV. It was love at first sight and together they had two lovely children in Dan and Emily, who follows in her fathers footsteps in playing for the Club.
Paula was a teacher and taught a number of our Club Juniors, some of whom have graduated to play Mens rugby for Blackheath
Paula, like Del, loved her rugby and together they toured Japan at the last World Cup.
The funeral will be held on Thursday 5th November at Kidbrooke Crematorium. The family have requested no flowers but those that wish can donate here to the family’s chosen charity, Teenage Cancer Trust.
