OURFC are very sad to announce that Match Day Volunteer, Tony Paddy, passed away on Saturday 11th June just tow months short of his 89th birthday. Tony was born near Truro in August 1933 and was extremely proud of his Cornish heritage, he continued to fly the Cornish flag from his car up to his passing. Tony served in the Lifeguards, including being part of the Queen’s Coronation Parade in 1953, before having a distinguished career in the Police Force. A keen sportsman himself – football and tennis in particular – Tony always spoke passionately about the ‘Trelawny’s Army’, the Cornish County team and their success in the County Championship, six titles since 1908 and his favourite player in the current England set-up, another proud man of Cornwall Jack Nowell.
Tony will be missed by all at OURFC for his welcoming attitude to all those visiting Iffley road on match days.
