Abergavenny Rugby Club are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of another member of their rugby family Hugh Parsons. Hugh was a former Youth Team captain and a member of the first Youth teams formed at Abergavenny in the late 1960`s. Hugh was captain in the 1970/71 season in the Youth teams third year in existence and went on to represent the 1st. XV for several years, prior to emigrating to Australia in 1981. Hugh joined Geelong Ruby Club representing them as player, coach and latterly as an administrator, Aussie speak for a committee man!

Hugh is pictured as captain of the Youth team for the 1970/71 season along with many recognisable faces from that era that went on to form the backbone of Abergavenny senior sides for several seasons.

From his Abergavenny Rugby family we send our sincere condolences and best wishes to his wife Judith and his family and friends, in Australia, Wales and England

Cymru am Byth


Yours in Rugby
