Rugby football in Cheshire has lost one of its great stalwarts- George Cox, who died on 21st May 2016, aged 86.
George, whilst in the Royal Navy, played for the Combined Services in Portsmouth before moving up to Cheshire in 1955 when he joined Chester Rugby Club. As a powerful and intimidating second row forward and a lineout specialist, he played 380 games for the first XV before he retired in 1967. He also played a number of times for Cheshire. As well as captaining the club for three years he subsequently became Chairman and finally President- the first member in the club’s history to hold all three key positions of responsibility.
In addition, he put a great deal back into the wider game, becoming President of Cheshire RFU in the years 1984 to 1986 and their County Representative on the RFU Council for ten years.
There will be a memorial service for George at 2.30pm on Wednesday 1st June at St Pauls Church, Helsby.
The church is on the main road from Chester through Helsby past the Railway Inn on the left. The church is on the right hand side of the road.
