Joe Brannagan

It is with much regret that we confirm the passing away in Wigan Infirmary on Friday 8th May 2015, former player and committee member Joe Brannagan. 

Joe played for the Fire Brigade, Golborne Sports and Social Club, and PB Hillbillys and was instrumental along with Allan Pickford and the late Clive Maule in launching Friday night coaching sessions for juniors, initially at Robin Park Sports Centre, before transferring to the Thomas Linacre School in Wigan and subsequently PBCC. Joe retired as a player after season 1999/2000 and as a committee member in 2004 and spent some years mentoring the juniors at PBCC with PB Warriors and the PB Pie Eaters. 

Funeral Service and committal takes place at Howe Bridge Crematorium at 11.30am on Friday 22nd May 2015.

Our condolences go to wife Norma and their family.
