RIP MICK PEDDLE
It is with great sadness that we report that Ironsides stalwart Mick Peddle passed away early yesterday morning. Fondly remembered by so many Ironsiders for his dry humour and unflappable presence behind the clubhouse bar for many years, Mick was much more than our barman - he was a gentleman, sportsman, supporter and friend to many across the Club.
A devoted servant of Battersea Ironsides Sports Club, Mick was instrumental over many years in running and developing Battersea Ironsides FC, latterly as its Chairman. Though first and foremost a football man, Mick embodied the philosophy of "one club" - supporting the Cricket and Rugby clubs at senior and junior levels - on the boundary, on the touchline, and in the clubhouse - and growing in his knowledge and appreciation of the game of rugby over many years. For that, and for being such a genuine and kind man, he was equally cherished as a legend in the Rugby Club.
Alongside Jean, he played a huge part in making the Rugby Club’s seasons so memorable in the years before their retirement, and he will be missed by everyone who knew him.
We send our sincere condolences to Jean and all the family.
