Alan Breeze

Abergavenny Rugby Club is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Alan (Paddy) Breeze a true rugby stalwart and supporter of the Club, a member of the Breeze family who have all served the Club with distinction.
Alan represented the Club as a player, a committeeman, Chairman (1974 to 1977), and latterly as a trustee. Alan was chairman during the Clubs centenary year and was responsible for compiling the centenary booklet 1875 to 1975, One Hundred Years of Abergavenny Rugby Football Club.
Players of the 1980 vintage will recall the Club tours organised by Alan, a fluent French speaker, to Castelnau-Montratier and the return visit by the French side to Abergavenny. What goes on tour stays on tour but the 28 hour coach journey to Castelnau-Montratier was an experience which will live long in the memory of those who survived to tell the tale!!
From his Rugby family, we send our sincere condolences and best wishes to Alan`s family and friends.
Yours in Rugby
Huw Beavan
Chairman
