Rugby in North Midlands is mourning two well-known figures in Terry Malins and Ron Walker, who sadly passed away recently.
Malins enjoyed success as coach of Moseley Colts and North Midlands Colts for many years where he formed an effective partnership with John Beale and helped in the development of a large number of talented youngsters who went on to enjoy successful careers in senior rugby.
He later coached Moseley Oak and worked alongside Les Barwood helping to take rugby into Birmingham’s state schools.
Walker became the first Camp Hill Old Edwardian to win a Blue when he played for Cambridge in the 1963 Varsity Match.
The fly-half later had a spell with Coventry but returned to Camp Hill and captained the club in the late 1960s.
He won representative honours with North Midlands and North Wales and retained his links with Camp Hill, helping to look after the pitches at Haslucks Green Road after he retired from playing.
Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Terry Malins and Ron Walker.
