The RFL has sent its condolences to the family of Ron Earnshaw, the President of Batley Bulldogs who died on Saturday after a long illness.

 

Mr Earnshaw had a 70-year association with Batley and held a wide variety of positions including ballboy, programme seller, secretary, general manager, fund-raiser and director.

 

“It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Ron Earnshaw and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time,” said RFL Chief Executive Nigel Wood.

 

“Batley Bulldogs meant everything to Ron, and the club, and indeed, the whole sport owes him a great debt for his unswerving support and lifetime commitment to Rugby League in the town.

 

“Ron Earnshaw will be remembered with great fondness by many people as ‘Mr Batley Bulldogs’ and the game has been enriched by his contribution.”

 

Mr Earnshaw’s commitment to Batley was recognised in 2009 when he was inducted on to the Rugby League Roll of Honour.

Our 9 hole was named after Ronnie recently. The website naming sponsorship holds no monetary value to our board and I'm certain every fan new and old would be delighted to have mr earnshaw and the mount celebrated accordingly.
