It was with a great deal of sadness that we learned of the death of Will Skyrme, a fine prop forward who joined us in 1973 from Gwernyfed RFC – one of many great Breconshire players to have done so over the years.
Will played in the red, green and white of Ebbw Vale for six years and, in that time, propped against some of the best in Britain. He was devoted to Gwernyfed, a club with a very strong connection with Ebbw Vale. We send our condolences to Will’s family and friends, and to everyone at Gwernyfed RFC.
The funeral service will take place this Friday at 1pm at Llanfilo Church, in the village of Llanfilo, Brecon, Powys LD3 0RD.
