Memorial Rugby Match

July 23rd, 2016

Everyone at Old Swinford Hospital was saddened to hear of the death of Old Foleyan Robert Eves, aged 34.

Rob died of cancer on July 16th just days after he had married his long term partner, Gemma.

Rob was a former student who boarded in Maybury House from 1993-2000.  He was very much involved in the School community and was part of the successful rugby tour to Australia in 2000.  On Friday 22 July, a commemorative event was held by Stourbridge Rugby Club where he had played since the age of six.

Past students played against the Stourbridge Lions Legends, in his honour, and to raise funds for his family.

The thoughts of everyone at the school are with Gemma, their two young sons and everyone who knew him.
