Brad Davis Farewell and Presentation

Photo by James Wain

Last Tuesday evening in the Clubhouse we said goodbye to Brad and presented him with an engraved blue glass rugby ball memento.


When asked about his best memories of his time at the Rec, Brad told us: "My overall highlight was the brand of attacking rugby that the team always tried to play".

Hughie Armitage

It is with great regret and sadness that we have to inform Members of the death of Supporters' Club stalwart Hughie Armitage - who, as a regular seller of Bath Rugby Foundation's shirt raffle tickets with his wife Wendy, will have been well-known to many of you.


After a day spent with his close family on Thursday 21 March, Hughie slipped away peacefully at about 7.45 that evening.


We send our sincere condolences to Wendy, and assure the family that all of our thoughts and prayers are with them at this very sad time.

Farewell and Presentation to Brad Davis on Tuesday 19th March

When it was announced in early February that Brad Davis was to leave Bath Rugby to progress his coaching career elsewhere, the Club promised that we, the supporters, would have an opportunity to say 'goodbye' properly.  That opportunity has now been arranged by BRSC, with the Club making the Clubhouse available to accommodate as many supporters as possible for the Supporters' Club to make a presentation to Brad and for everyone to recognise and show their appreciation of his efforts over 6 1/2 years.


Place - The Rec Clubhouse; time - 7.00 for 7.30pm.


All Bath supporters are most welcome to come along and say farewell to Brad in person. Admission is free, of course, but please let Tom Sutton know that you plan to attend via  so that we can assess the requirements for bar staff.


Please pass this on to anyone you think might like to attend.
