We remember Nick Lacey

Nick sadly passed away on Friday 30th October, after a battle with cancer.

Nick was one of the great personalities within the Leicestershire Society of Referees and was well known throughout the rugby community in Leicestershire.

In his playing days Nick played for Vipers and Leicestershire before taking up the whistle and officiating at the highest level countrywide as well as locally for the Society. In recent years, Nick turned his hand to Match Observing and has guided many referees on their journey in the game.

Along side all this, Nick has been a stalwart of the Committee of LSRUR, for many, many years. He has served as Appointments Secretary, Chairman, Treasurer and is also an Honorary President of the Society; his contribution has been enormous. The wider rugby community in Leicestershire will also remember Nick as the MC for our annual Society dinner.

 Nick was a rugby man through and through and will be missed by us all.

Our thoughts are with Jane, Stephen, Mark and all the family at this time.
