Joanne Eccles formerly Klieve (nee Mitchell) died suddenly on 16 October 2016.

Joanne will have been known to many at the Littleborough RUFC as she managed a multitude of junior sides and many current players will have fond and happy memories of her.

She also served on the junior committee and played a prominent role in creating the foundations of the junior and mini set up Littleborough RUFC has today.

Sam Dickinson said: “I remember her as mum to former first team regular Eddy Klieve, whom we also pass on our deepest condolences, and as such would rarely, if ever, miss a game that Eddy was involved with.

“She will be greatly missed by all at Littleborough RUFC and may she rest in peace.”
