See the lovely tribute from his rugby club below;
We are heartbroken to announce that on Sunday evening our friend, teammate and Co-Chairman, Jimmy Walsh, passed away.
Jimmy had been a key player, supporter, chairman and outright legend for the Wandies since he joined in 2010. He was an infectiously energetic and generous character, full of life and he was a joy to be around.
He was a key in our title winning team in 2016, a vital member of restarting the Wanderers after the club folded for a year in 2018/19 and again was the main man in restarting the Sharjah 10’s, an event that people loved, after a 4 year break. He was also a great link in the hosting of the first supervets competition at the Sharjah Wanderers Sports Club this year. That was the kind of man he was, he would help out anybody that asked, on or off the field. And he loved an epic voicenote.
We will be honoring Jimmy in some way in the coming weeks, and further details will be shared in time.
He will truly be missed. Rest in peace Jimmy.
