Bridgwater & Albion Rugby Football Club was sad to learn of the death of Paul Ekins recently at the age of 70.
Paul was a Colt with the club in the late 1960’s and graduated into our senior sides and broke into the 1st XV in the early 1970’s. He was a strongly-built centre well able to make the breaks in the middle of the field and at the same time, provide good defence when the opposition were in possession. He played mainly in our United XV but made 45 1st XV appearances. He was one of the pioneers of the Guernsey tours very popular in the 1970’s – taking part in the first tour at the end of the 1971/72 season.
Paul was a cost and management accountant and concluded his working days at ROF Puriton where he had enjoyed a long career.
After his rugby football retirement he pursued golf at Enmore Park and appeared for Bridgwater & Albion in their annual encounter against Taunton former players.
The club extends its sincere condolences to Paul’s family.
