RIP Justin Daurat
We are very saddened and shocked to hear about the passing of Old Boy Justin Daurat, who died suddenly and unexpectedly in April.
Justin attended Wimbledon College between 1991 and 1993 and played over 100 games for the Old Wimbledonians Football Club between 1995 and 2010, also managing the 3rd team for a period.
‘Jae’ was a very popular member of the club whose passion for music was as big as his Love of football. Many locals may recognise him from his regular stints as karaoke compare or talented singer at the Raynes Park Tavern.
Unfortunately we have very few other details. Please however keep those he has left behind in your prayers.
Chairman Old Wimbledonians FC
The OWA are sad to announce the passing of Bryan Snalune a few days ago. No further details are known.
Bryan taught at the College for many years ending up as Deputy Headmaster. He became an integral part of the OWCC for much of that time. He was a very canny quickish off-spin bowler who used his height to get loads of bounce. He was a Captain’s dream in tight situations because he was difficult to score off and could keep an end quiet for many overs. He was no mug with the bat either.
Above all he was a delight to have in the team with a wry sense of humour and laughter was never far away wherever he was.
In his career after leaving the College he became Headmaster at Bishop Thomas Grant in Streatham Hill and subsequently went on to higher realms in the educational establishment.
May he rest in peace.
Thanks to all of you for your messages of condolence, these have been passed on to his wife. There will be a private cremation soon and a Memorial Service in due course.
