Tim Johnson’s uncle Adrian

Adrian Johnson – In Memoriam

Adrian, who was Club Chairman; Tim Johnson’s uncle and Timmy Johnson’s brother, died on Tuesday 23 Mar. Tim has shared these original photos of Hatchley Barn being built by him and other players and would like to recognise Adrian’s contribution. Tim adds….
“It is with sadness, that I announce that Adrian Johnson has passed away peacefully at home.
Adrian played forWoodbridge Rugby Union Football Club during the 70’s, whilst his real sporting passion was hockey and cricket, where he represented Suffolk. Adrian gave up playing rugby after breaking his leg!
Along with many other players, and his brother Timmy Johnson, Adrian was fundamental and a driving force in buying the land and building Hatchley Barn (see pictures), the foundation of the Club that we love so much today.
Adrian was lifelong supporter of the rugby club and always keen to hear match updates from his nephews and niece Ollie, Ed, Magic and TJ whenever we had the chance to discuss rugby”.

    Very sorry to hear this sad news. I enjoyed playing rugby with Adrian in the early 70s and attended several memorable parties at his house during that time. I hope to be able to come to a match later in the year to catch up with friends from those days.

    We are very sorry to hear about Adrian.
    His active support in the early days of helping to build the clubhouse is a wonderful legacy.

    Very sorry to hear of this sorry event.
    I spent a number of years knowing and playing alongside both Adrian and Timmy, Including a memorable midsummer ball involving Tim Rice at which I held the fort behind the bar till the early hours !!
    Kind regards with happy memories to all.
