Club News Barwell family requests no tribute for former chairman
At the request of the Barwell family, there will be no formal tribute for former chairman Leon Barwell, who sadly passed away in June.
The match day programme for the Saints’ Aviva Premiership opener will include an obituary of Leon, but there will be no minute’s silence or applause before the game against Exeter.
The Barwell family has received thousands of tributes, by email, card, post and other means, with nearly a thousand people packing into All Saints Church in Northampton for Leon’s funeral.
The family is sincerely grateful for all the support that it has received over the summer, and thanks supporters for their understanding.
