It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Roger Port in late January.
Roger was a long standing member of DKRFC. Player, Youth Section Chairman, Chairman of Rugby, Club President 1996-1998 and Life Member. Roger’s most important contribution was his tireless effort in all aspects of the club affairs over 30 years and more . Whether it was on committee, on the ground, club house development or club sponsorship / fundraising, he was heavily involved and totally committed. A true, dedicated powerhouse for the DK cause.
‘Porty’ was well respected and well liked by the members of the many clubs DK played throughout the North Midlands and indeed the country. He was undoubtedly, in his time, seen as the face of DK.
Our sincere condolences go to his family and friends at this sad time.
