It is with great sadness to inform you of the death of Nick Timms. Nick had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in November 2018 and after bravely fighting on he passed away on 31st August. Nick was 51 and will be hugely missed by everyone who knew him and the thoughts and prayers of everyone connected with the rugby club are with Vanessa, Matt and Izzy at this sad time.
Nick joined the club in the late 90’s and played mainly prop and second row for the 1st XV , the 2nd XV and the 3rd XV for a number of years. More latterly he reignited his playing career by turning out for the Fat Stags XV (The Antlers Vets) on many occasions. Nick was a big imposing man who provided plenty of grunt in the scrums and around the pitch, but he was so much more than that. You really couldn’t have met someone who more perfectly fitted the description of being gentle giant. Nick was a lovely, kind hearted genuine guy who would always help you before thinking of himself. He loved his rugby, his family and his life and he has been taken far to soon.
Nick and Vanessa were also regulars at the club and always volunteered to help organise club socials, team events and tours. They were also touchline parents for their son Matt who played for the youth section.
Nicks funeral will be on Thursday 19th September at 2:40pm
