Ray Edwards


A gathering of Old Boys attended the very moving funeral ceremony at Finchley Crematorium on 7th April 1998 for a popular footballer and musician, Ray Edwards. I can remember inviting Ray to join the Old Boys when I spoke to a group of school leavers in 'The Old Hall'. Even at the time Ray was becoming an accomplished guitarist and he continued throughout his life to play gigs in clubs and pubs every week. Many of his friends from the groups that he had played with were also at the ceremony. Ray played football for the Old Boys for a number of years and was liked by everybody. It was a sad moment for all of us present.
