Old Yardleians RFC: Club News

The world of rugby will never be the same.

Tue, 08 Oct 2019 12:00

We sadly have to bring you the news of the passing away of Bert (Keith) Black.

He has been suffering for a considerable time and even though his death was not unexpected the grief and suffering will be felt by his family and friends.

The funeral will be held at Redditch Crematorium and that will be followed by the wake which will be held at The Old Yardleians club.  As more information arrives I will pass it on to you.

Our sympathy goes out to Joy and the family and I am sure that there will be many messages in the near future describing his character both on and off the rugby pitch.

Bert Black, a wonderful man,

May he rest in peace.
