|remembering those we have lost|
|30 August 1971 - 12 November 2020|
I am sad to report that I have heard that our friend and good basketball legend from Gloucester Saxons; Joe Grainger passed away yesterday.
Even though, I didn’t know him too well, he always was polite and energetic when talking about basketball. His very short time in the YBL he proves what Darren Cooke says about his enthusiasm and his character. Our thoughts are with his family and friends and those of the Gloucester Saxons.
Darren Cooke of Gloucester Saxons wrote about his dear friend Joe;
“We will celebrate all that Joe brought to our lives properly very soon. In the meantime, our thoughts go out to Joe’s family, close friends and every life he touched.
“Rest easy Joe, we’ve got this”.
Emma-Jane at Worcester wrote about Joe;
"He was a massive part go Gloucester Saxons Basketball Club, co-organising Global CVL tournaments that many of the Worcester Academy teams attended. These tournaments have played such a big part of our players and coaches development over the years. He is going to be missed by so many people.”
