John King

John King (Burton Bank 1956-61). We are very sorry to report the death of John King on Saturday 12th November, following a long illness.

John was a true stalwart of the Club; as well as being an accomplished rugby player, John was the OMRFC Middlesex Representative for many years, he edited the Middlesex Informer Magazine, helped out as grounds man at Headstone Lane, organised excellent lunches on Vice Presidents' Day, and was also responsible for introducing Martlet, which he edited. John was awarded the President's Medal in 2015 in recognition of his enormous contribution to the Club.  The link below will take you to the 50th edition of Martlet which features a history of the publication which started in 1990.

John’s funeral is taking place on 2nd December in Oakham and will be attended by many OMs.
