Gordon Throup

It is with great sadness to announce former player, Gordon Throup, sadly passed away on Monday after battling with cancer.

Gordon, with a reputation for a being a hard, but fair hooker, was a great servant to the clubs and teams he was involved with and was a very likeable person in the local rugby community, with a smile as broad as Malham Cove!

During his career he played for Wharfedale, Morley, Yorkshire and North Ribblesdale, where upon hanging up his boots, he later became coach.

The club sends its sincere condolences to Gordon’s family and our friends at North Ribblesdale, for whom he was a great rugby warrior.
