Gerry Fitzpatrick



Just wanted to let everyone know of the sudden passing on Sunday of Gerry Fitzpatrick. He was a true legend of the Valleys Diehards and had done so much recently to preserve the history of the great club.

Funeral details are not known as yet - will pass on as soon as the are known 


Just got a text from someone telling me about this. Very sad.

Had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of years ago at a function. Yes, a great guardian of not only Valleys but the BRL legacy in general. 


I heard about this a couple of weekends ago when someone showed me a story in the Courier Mail. I was shocked as Gerry was so fit and such a genuine bloke. The work that he did for Vallys both on and off the field will always be remembered. He was a true champion! I will miss him at the Valleys functions as he talked to everyone and made them feel a part of the club.
