Jon Harrop passes away
It is with the deepest regret that the club has to announce that Jon Harrop, founder member and stalwart of Bath Lacrosse Club passed away after a long illness.
Jon and Penny founded the club in 1983. Jon played in goal for many years turning his hand to officiating on retirement.
As well as a “Zebra” Jon will probably be best remembered for his announcements at the Bath Eights, which he ran for 27 years.
Jon was a good friend and shall be sorely missed by all that knew him.
Bath Lacrosse Club's condolences go to Penny and the rest of the family.
