It is with great sadness that we note the passing away of former Crawshay’s Player, Team Manager and Committeeman, Ian Ford, at the age of 91.
Ian appeared 482 times for Newport RFC in the 40’s 50’s and 60’s, mostly famously in the heroic victory over the All Blacks in 1963 where his personal performance was described as ‘a collusus’.
He also won 2 caps for Wales in 1959 but Crawshay’s will remember him for all the sterling work he did for us on and off the pitch for which the club is hugely indebted. He was a wonderful gentleman and our condolences go out to all his family but particularly Martin, Roger, Justin and Lisa.
