With great sadness we wish to inform all the rugby Community in Hampshire that Peter Cunningham passed away early this morning.

Peter had been diagnosed with cancer a few months ago, was in hospital for about ten days recently and had only just been transferred to a nursing home.


He was a great servant to Hampshire RURS and the Royal Navy Referees Society. Many players will remember Peter with his courtesy and cheerful manner, delivering his decisions with humour and sincerity.

Many older members will recall he was capped by the Royal Navy at full back and was a life long member of Gosport & Fareham RFC.

Funeral arrangements will be published in due course.
