“It is with great sadness that we must report the passing of Robert Craven on 22nd April in hospital. He had celebrated his 90th birthday earlier this year and unfortunately caught the Coronavirus in the care home he was residing. A true gentleman and stalwart of the Club who first played hockey for Sandal in 1950. He has been associated with the Sandal/Wakefield Hockey Club and College Grove for 70 years, many as either secretary of the hockey or Sports Club.

“It is a great loss and our thoughts are with Robert’s family at this very sad time.”
