Dear senior players, mini players, members, parents , coaches and friends,
We all have been shocked to hear that Hervé Foucault passed away on Wednesday the 19th October 2016, after suffering a stroke.
He was living in Versailles near Paris, having recently moved back to France this summer.
We are speechless and upset by this news.
Most of us have known Herve for many years. He was a true London French gentleman. Who has not enjoyed his company, 100% positive attitude, great commitment on and off the pitch, and so much passion? One could say his playing style was unique, he was unique….
He brilliantly launched our mini section 3 years ago and there are now dozens of young players at Barnes Elms every Sunday morning. He also created a 5 Nations tournament to close their season in style. He truly deserved his Man of the Year trophy awarded last year. What a legacy ! Herve, we are so proud of your work….
Herve was a great family man. Constance and 3 adorable kids have been regular figures at the club. So much involvement from them in the past 2 years. What a lucky club we were !
The London French RFC community will always remember you,
Your family will always be in our heart, and we will support them going through this and beyond,
We love you,
