Default Rugbymatt

This morning we've learned that Matt Gilbert AKA Rugbymatt on these forms has passed away. Have no other information other than that, but just letting those older forum members here who knew him well know
He spent a lot of time in the Lounge as I remember, so many of you may remember him
I have no information as to what happened, other that he was found at home as I believe he lived on his own.

That is a shock, and very sad. We used to chat a lot when he was on here more regularly.

That's very sad, yes I knew him, but only from on here, he was very active when I was living in Spain. so sad.

Is this someone we might know by their BE name? A lot of us don't share real names much on here at all.

No Sam Greenfield is as herself on here, but I think not a regular visitor

'She hasn't posted since 2018, but may, of course, still be reading posts. We were all in Spain and regulars on the same forum at that time, early 2000s.

Oh no. I often post on his Facebook threads. He was supposed to be moving down to Cornwall and it recently got called off because of Covid.

That is heartbreaking.
RIP Matt x

I'm a bit shocked by this rotten news.
Very sad all round. Gone far too soon.

Thank you for thinking to let us BE lot know.
