The death has occurred of Des Foot at the great age of 96. Old Wesley’s oldest member Des was Club Captain in 1953-54. A tall second row he played during the late forties and early fifties. He would have played longer but was transferred out of Dublin for business reasons. Until not too long ago he was a regular attender at the Annual Past Captains’ and Presidents’ Lunch and the Over 60s Dinner. He was also a keen cricketer.
A bank manager by profession, Des worked in various locations in Dublin and around the country. He retired to Borris, Co. Carlow where he has lived since.
Old Wesley extends its sympathies to Des’s children Melanie, Neil and Clive, his grandchildren including Liam Foot, who plays for Old Wesley Under 20s, his extended family and friends.
