Rest in Peace Andy

We received the sad news today that Andy Cole had passed away after a short illness. The Club extends its heart felt condolences to Andy's family and friends. Andy left the school in 1988. He went on to play for the Old Boys for a number of years prior to the merger with Purley. He was a great athelete and a prolific winger as well as a great sprinter. Intelligent and kind, Andy will be sorly missed by all those who knew him. May he rest in peace. Simon Cripps writes:
"Sad to say that Andy Cole, from Fisher 1981-1988, passed away last night after a short illness. He was a legendary wing, who many will remember for his incredible try-scoring record. A great caricature and always good for a debate, no matter the topic.
Incredibly clever, with so many diverse interests and talents, he will be sorely missed.
Will update when we have funeral details.
