Charlie Yeoward

To All Members

On behalf of Salcombe RFC it is with great sadness and heavy heart that I have to inform you that after a long illness, Charlie Yeoward has lost his fight and passed away.

On a personal note and anyone who was fortunate enough to have met Charlie, they would have known him for his generosity, great sense of humour and fun loving outlook on life, always up for a prank or a laugh, living life to the full.

Charlie's company Yeoward Boatyards have been the club's main sponsor for over 25 years, for which the club have been indebted to this loyalty. I am pleased to say that Charlie spoke to me when he was first diagnosed with his illness and he made a point of saying that his company would happily continue to be the main sponsor of the club.

At this time of sadness our thoughts are with Charlie's wife Annie, son Ollie and daughter Rosie. A great loss to Salcombe, but never forgotten.

RIP Charlie Yeoward.

Mark Lidstone - Chairman SRFC
