Dickie Zimmern Passes Away

We are sorry to advise of the death of former Centurion President Dickie Zimmern at the age of 88. Dickie was an Old Mancunion and played for Cambridge University and Hampstead Lacrosse Clubs. He was one of the last surviving members of the England team that played in the demonstration tournament at the 1948 London Olympics. Following the Varsity Tour of the US in the easrly 60s, he became a leading advocate for the introduction of the helmet into the English game. A change much resisted by those who at that time saw it as bringing unwelcome North American practices into our game. How things have changed?

The funeral will take place on Wednesday 26th March at 12.30pm at St. Ippolyts Church, Ashbrook Lane, St. Ippolyts, SG4 7PB.
