RIP Bob Chapman

8th May 2017

We are sorry to have to announce the sad news that Bob Chapman died on 8th May after a long battle with Cancer. Bob was a great tight head prop and joined Grasshoppers in 1976 from Pinner Grammarians where he stared as a centre. However, Bobís link with Grasshoppers started as many others, at the Priory Judo Club, Acton. Bob was one of six black belts from the Club who played for the first XV and were all bad losers!

Bob was one of many policemen who have joined the Club over the years but his party piece was his Buddy Holly impersonation and those on the Rouen Easter tour in 1980, will remember his virtuoso performance on the return ferry. Our sincere condolences go out to his wife and family at this sad time and can confirm that the funeral is likely to be on Friday 2nd June at the Amersham Crematorium Whielden Lane, Amersham HP7 0ND, at 3.15pm.
