Everyone associated with rugby in North Midlands has been saddened to learn of the death of Ray Powell, a former captain and coach of Redditch,
Powell captained Redditch in 1979 and coached the club with Noel Pritchard from 1987 to 1990. He was a first team regular for many years and ended his playing days in Redditch’s Exiles XV.
Powell also played for Kings Norton and is the brother of Roger Powell, a stalwart of the Ross on Wye club.
