David Roebuck RIP

Committee Update

In recognition of Dave’s tireless commitment and dedication to the rugby club we will be installing a memorial bench next to his late, great friend Steve Metcalf’s honorary bench where they can sit side by side in view of the 1st team pitch and the grounds they worked so hard to maintain.

In order to fund the project we welcome your donations, which can be made at the below link. Thank you in advance and Rest In Peace Dave and Steve



Everyone who knew YM Stalwart David Roebuck was devastated to hear of his sudden death following a heart attack whilst his loving daughter Alison was driving him to Hospital. The name ‘Legend’ is a much used hyped-up word, but David truly was a massive ‘Legend’ at the YM Rugby Club.

Over the years he has voluntarily worked tirelessly as our ‘Head Groundsman’ overseeing his apprentice and great mate Steve Metcalfe keeping our fields in wonderful condition. In addition he has organised and been a main player in the tremendous success of Concert on the Hill and the annual Christmas concerts that raised tens of thousands of pounds for the Club and Local Charities.

David possessed a great sense of humour, he loved a ‘bit of fun’ (also a good moan) and was always happy to play along and soak up any banter aimed in his direction, but always gave as much as he got back. In particular he was just a good mate and friend to all.

One of life’s real characters, David believed wholeheartedly in the ethos of the YM. We all hope that his buddy Steve Metcalfe was waiting for him at the pearly gates on Thursday afternoon, no doubt telling off that he hadn’t been lining the field straight.

David Roebuck will be sorely missed at Laund Hill, he was a true YMer.

RIP David

There will be a minute’s applause before the Leodiensian’s games on Saturday 25th March in celebration of David’s life. Funeral details to follow when known.
