Very sad news, aged 80.

All part of the late 70s, early 80s resurgence under John Barnwell.

I always count the Sherpa Van Trophy as an incredibly important win in our history however our 1980 league cup win was the last time we won anything big and Richie Barker was a big part of it, as well as his contribution in our general league form. Sorry to hear of his death.
