Some sad news. Rodney Cotterill passed away over the weekend. Rodders was a member of Sale FC from 1945 and lived for the club and his family. He was well known for popping into the changing room before and after games to encourage the players with his cry of “stick it up em”.
When we played and lost the playoff against Old Elthamian’s he was one of the first people on the pitch to shake hands with the opposition and to commiserate with the players. He travelled with us to Leicester Lions when we won National 2 North the following year and was a source of inspiration to us all. He will be missed by all of us at Sale FC Rugby. RIP Rodders.
