Halifax RUFC mourn the loss of former captain and president Michael Granger

It is with great sadness that Halifax RUFC report the death of former captain and president Michael Granger.

Mike will be much missed at Ovenden Park where he was captain for the 1957/8 and 1958/9 season, while he later took over role of club president for the 1996/7 season.

Mike remained a faithful supporter of the club thereafter.

Mike's funeral will take place at 12noon on Tuesday 23 May at Altrincham Crematorium (Whitehouse Lane, Dunham Massey, WA14 5RH), with the reception at Withington Golf Club (243 Palatine Road, Northenden, M20 2UE).

Our sympathies are with the friends and family of Mike at this difficult time. RIP Mike.
