Passing of Chris Leaton

Passing of Chris Leaton

RCL are deeply deeply sorry to announce the passing of Chris Leaton.
Chris moved to Luxembourg in September 2018 to work for JP Morgan. He immediately immersed himself in the activities of the club, coaching the U14s in the Belgian Championships. He was always available for training and matches and was active across many roles in the club. He had a unique combination of technical know how and patience which created a bond with all the players he coached. The U14s from 2018 are now starting their U18s season, so his loss is deeply felt across the whole Junior section. He was a familiar smiling face at senior matches and shared a flat with senior player Casmier Yandall.
After discussion among the club and its coaches, and confirmed by his brother David, it was felt Chris would have wanted the boys to play this weekend so the matches against Soignies and Coq Mosan will take place but with a minutes applause before the matches.
The club are in touch with his family in the UK, offering as much support as we can at this terrible time.
An appropriate act of memorial will be announced in the near future.
