It with great sadness that I inform you of the death on Saturday of Mark Edwards.

Mark was a relatively a new member of our society since his return to the UK from Hong Kong and so keen to join us.

It was only three months ago that Mark joined us at West Lancs as defending Spring Trophy Champion having one in 2016 at Formby.

Mark despite undergoing constant treatment was very keen to play despite having to attend a consultant’s clinic at Clatterbridge Hospital that very morning requesting a late tee time instead of being first out as champion in case he was delayed.

I presented him with the `No Relief` trophy this year, it could not have gone to anyone else for what he was going through with his treatment, the efforts he went through just to get there and in his words, “he was not going to miss it”.

 A long standing Northern Club member, a past 1st X1 and 2nd X1 team captain, a member at West Lancs, his death seems to have come so quickly after enjoying his company so recently as May.

Funeral arrangements will no doubt be posted on the Northern Club notice board in due course.

The funeral arrangements are for there to be a Mass at St Joseph's RC Church, Blundellsands on Wednesday August 16th at 11:30am.

Mark's family has requested that there be no flowers but donations may be made to Woodlands Hospice whose staff cared for Mark during his final days.

There is also a Just Giving page in memory of him.
