Sad news of former player

It is with great sadness that we have heard of the death of Ralph Tansill. Ralph played in the centre for Ebbw Vale in the 1960s, and was a stalwart of the Athletic XV, forming a powerful midfield partnership with Terry Cameron. After his playing days, he continued to contribute to the club as a hard working committee member, including a season as Match Secretary, a demanding role at a time when there were 50 matches in a season.

Ralph was held in the highest regard by all who had the pleasure of knowing him, and we send our heartfelt sympathies to Wendy and his family.
