Harvey Richards - RIP


It is with great sadness that the CRFU learned today of the passing of past County President, Player and County Selector, Harvey Richards.

Harvey played his club rugby for Penzance & Newlyn where he gained his county caps. He also played for Middlesex when he was with Rosslyn Park.

Following his playing days Harvey became a county selector and also in 1973 was prominent in bringing mini rugby into schools in Cornwall. He then became President of Cornwall RFU from 1994-97.

The CRFU wishes to express it's sincerest condolences to Harvey's family and friend at this time.

The funeral service will be held at Marazion Methodist Church on Saturday 9th February at 2 pm, followed afterwards by a gathering at the Godolphin Arms.
