Matt Rogers - Funeral Details

Matt's funeral will be on Monday 6 March 2017 at 12 Noon at Holy Trinity Church, Rainow and then afterwards at the Robin Hood in the village.

Matt’s wife Laura would like anyone from the Quiz League who wishes to attend to meet outside their house (see the News and Views for details) no later than 11:45am so that the funeral cortege can be walked to the church. Alternatively, people can go directly to the church if they wish.

Laura would like everyone to then attend at the Robin Hood for food and drink for a fitting send off for Matt.

Please be early and note that there will be a road block in the village from 11:30am. The Robin Hood has allowed the family to use their car park all day and there will be NO parking except for funeral vehicles on Church Lane itself.

The Robin Hood will be open early for tea, coffee etc on the morning of the funeral.

A group of Matt and Laura’s friends have taken the burden off the family and are arranging the catering and other things and would appreciate an idea of numbers.

If you do intend to attend the funeral and the Robin Hood afterwards, if you let me or Nick know, we will pass on the numbers etc to everyone organising the day.

Matt Rogers


As per my email of today, I am sorry to be passing on some unbelievably sad news about one of our colleagues.

I’ve been informed that Matt Rogers, who has played for the Waters Green Lemmings this year and the Robin Hood at Rainow previously, died suddenly and unexpectedly on Friday last week, the 17th of February.

I’ve no more information that I can share with you currently but Nick and Bob from the Waters Green Lemmings team have been given this news and they quite reasonably wanted people to be aware of it before the Cup and Plate games take place tomorrow.

Matt was a regular contributor in recent years to the League, not least through his many witty and incisive comments on Nick’s blog, both in his own name and that of Alan a’ Dale before that. Matt also provided some very comprehensive data at the end of last season analysing the last 15 years’ worth of individual scores across the Leagues, whilst he was also top of the B League Individual table himself in the latest published News and Views.

Although Matt may have only been involved for a few short years in this forum, he most certainly made his mark and he will be remembered kindly by all of us. A local Altrincham news site has printed the below tribute to Matt as well…

I’m sure all our sympathies go to Matt’s family and friends at this awful time, primarily of course to Matt’s wife Laura and their two children.

Once I have any more information at all that I can pass on, I will do so.
