February 2021 News Letter
Here is an update from the SSSC and we hope that everyone is safe and well.
We have details of how to make a donation in memory of Roger Bowen who died on Thursday, 28th January, and on a happier note, news of the Zoom session with Alex Sanderson for members of the SSSC.
A few words on Roger Bowen by Joe Parsonage, the chair of the SSSC.
After consultation with Roger’s family and considering this current climate, they have expressed a concern with people attending his cremation. We at the SSSC respect that request from the family together with “no flowers” to be sent. Our condolences go out to the family.
Helen, his daughter, asked if it was possible to make a donation to the memory of Roger via a rugby related charity. I advised her that the SSSC had previously donated to restartrugby.org.uk Some of you may have seen this, sent out via the Sale Sharks Supporters Club Facebook page and Away with the team. A further link is being posted via the Sale Sharks Supporters web site.
Roger was a character. Anybody who had anything to do with Sale Sharks rugby either knew him or knew of him and most spoke to him on many occasions.
He was a wonderful man in many ways. He had been Chair of the SSSC for several years and dedicated to the committee. He travelled from Wolverhampton for committee meetings. He travelled all over Europe in support of the team. A wise man of much experience in work and travel. A former player himself, Wolverhampton being one of his clubs.
To many of us he is and will always be a legend. People will talk of him for years to come. If only to say “Do you remember Roger saying, doing or just simply, do you remember Roger?”
Please feel free to donate to his memory via this good cause.
Finally. When we do run a “fun bus” I will ask everyone to raise a toast to Roger as we pass J10 on the M6.
He will be sorely missed.
RIP Roger Bowen.
