Peter Lord

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of WGCHC Life Member and former President Peter Lord on 6th May aged 91.

His connection with the Club dates back to 1946 when together with Tony Warrington, Peter Willard and a few others injected new life into an ailing Club. Peter was the driving force of the team with his boundless initiatives and enthusiasm which eventually produced a thriving club with it’s own clubhouse and bar, four pitches and six Mens teams and three Ladies teams playing at King George VI Playing Fields making us a certainly a force to be reckoned with throughout the East for many years.

He was President from 1977-82 and the first Life Member and on the field was a team captain, an aggressive centre forward and a fearsome goalie.

We say farewell to a great Clubman and motivator who did so much in what was virtually a lifetime of dedication to the Club and I will miss a friend dating back to Junior School days.
