Des Oakes – deceased

The death has occurred of Des Oakes.  Des joined Old Wesley after leaving The High School where we played on the wing for our junior teams during the 1960s and 1970s. He was the Captain of the 3rdB team the won the Winters Cup  in 1976 but unfortunately was injured for the final.  This was the first time Old Wesley won a junior cup since 1895.  After retiring Des was a regular supporter of club rugby and social events.

Old Wesley extends its sympathy to his wife Pat, children Julie, Stephen and Martin, and the rest of Des’s family at this sad time.  He will be sadly missed by his many friends in Old Wesley
