All Pacific shocked by Tom's tragic death

Captain David Murray

"I heard about Tom's death on the radio before the match. The only reason we played yesterday was because we could not be sure it was Tom.

Nigel and I decided it was best not to say anything before the match and play on given nothing was confirmed. In hindsight, perhaps we should not have played. The game itself was pretty meaningless as Tom's death puts everything in perspective.

I think everyone in the club who met and played with Tom will be touched and hugely sadened by his loss. This is a terrible and tragic waste of life.

While I realise nothing we can say or do at this time will make any difference, our thoughts are with Jon and his family at this terrible time."
