It is with great sadness that I have to let you know of Rod s sudden passing. After a brief aggressive illness he is no longer with us. Rod was always a cheerful character and some of you will remember him from years ago with his brother Steve and others, playing for local teams. He filled in for us recently and it was always a pleasure to be in his company. Rod has always worked hard, loved the Seagulls and will now miss there Premiership campaign, sometimes life can be so cruel. Our thoughts go out to his family.I will keep you posted with regard to funeral arrangements.
