Andy on training camp with PTRC in Banyoles, 2009

Putney Town RC is saddened to hear of the death of Andy Holmes MBE. Andy coached the men’s squad at PTRC from 2009-2010 as well as his major role at Furnival Sculling Club. Both clubs undertook a highly enjoyable and successful joint training camp at Banyoles under Andy’s stewardship in 2009. We very much enjoyed Andy’s relaxed style, and he was instrumental in the successes of the club over the past couple of years. Andy had been a regular feature up and down the tideway, more recently as Furnivall Sculling Club’s Director of Rowing. Details of the book of condolence and memorial service are available on the British Rowing website.

Andy will be fondly remembered by all those with whom he shared his passion for rowing.
