I'm sorry to report that life member, Cyril Geldman, passed away on Tuesday 29th May after suffering a stroke earlier in the month.
I never met Cyril so the tributes and anecdotes that I've seen these last few days make me feel I missed getting to know someone very special. Described by all as a true gent - Cyril was heavily involved with Water Polo much the same as his son Pete is now.
Some of our players remember him well with one recalling "Cyril was a fantastic bloke - as a youngster all those years ago he really looked after me as I started to play for the senior team. He was a good Polo player and great defending if anyone picked on us younger ones he always “sorted things out”! He would always make sure we got home safely and helped introduce us to a pint in the pub. I don’t think we ever paid ......perfect."
Cyril's funeral will take place at Bramcote Crematorium NG9 3GJ on Tuesday 12th June at 9.30am.
Our thoughts are with his Family and friends.
