SRUSR are sad to announce the death of David Winter, who died after a short illness on Sunday, 14 February 2021 at the age of 48.
David was an enthusiastic referee and member of the society, who regularly attended monthly meetings. He held joint membership with North Midlands referees’ society and was often out on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as supporting the development of his sons – Anthony and Daniel – into active referees. His forte was often to ask obscure questions of law and the holding of challenging views, which he was keen to express. His contribution to rugby refereeing in Staffordshire will be greatly missed.
SRUSR would like to offer its sincerest condolences to David’s family and friends at this difficult time.
