Dinbych mourns the loss of gentleman Mike Hargraves

Clwb Rygbi Dinbych are deeply saddened to announce the passing of the highly respected and much loved club figure Mr Michael Hargraves. 


Michael or Mike as he was known to many, began his association with Clwb Rygbi Dinbych in the early 2000s. A devoted assistant to his wife Bobbie the Steward of the Club, their hard work ensured an immaculate Clubhouse and a warm welcome to those who visited Caeau Les Phillips during their tenure. On the field Mike helped Coach his son Geraint’s age group from U10s through to U16s and took immense pride in seeing both Gareth & Geraint representing Clwb Rygbi Dinbych.

Along with all the work Mike did at the front of house, he was also a key figure in a variety of projects to develop the Club’s facilities behind the scenes. A sponsorship partnership with local business Denbigh Building Plastics organised by Mike would see the Club modernise and improve into hefantastic facility we have today. 


A proud Welshman, Evertonian and former Royal Welsh Fusilier, Mike was also a true gentleman, and will be sorely missed at Clwb Rygbi Dinbych.


On behalf of the club our heartfelt condolences go out to Bobbie, Gareth, Geraint and all the family at this difficult time.


Rest in peace Mike.
