I have recently been informed of the following and whilst it may be a late obituary it would seem better late than not at all for this fellow. I didn’t know Garth personally but without people like him many, many people would not be playing the game they love.
Garth Thomas (1934-2015), aged 81 passed away peacefully on 28th May 2015.
Garth founded Charlemont Star in 1957 and without his dedication and commitment the club it would have folded a number of years ago. He was well known personality in the Stone Cross area of West Bromwich and anyone who ever met him always has a story to tell. 58 years on his legacy continues with the current set of players in the WMCFL.
Rest in peace!
