Obituary | Alan Brinn

Gloucester Rugby were saddened to hear about the passing of former player Alan Brinn, aged 81, this afternoon.

Alan Brinn was a lock forward who was noted as a formidable scrummager and a powerful presence around the field. One of the genuine greats of Gloucester Rugby, he holds the Gloucester Club Record of 574 appearances, made between 1960 and 1979. 

After retiring from rugby Alan ran his sports outfitting business in Eastgate Street, Gloucester. He became an England Rugby associate national selector and was Gloucester Rugby chairman leading up to the start of the professional era in 1996.

Alan, thank you for your unbelievable contribution to Gloucester Rugby, and our City as a whole.

Our thoughts are with Alan's family and friends at this sad time.
