Mark Groves Obituary, Death – We learned the shocking news that Mark Groves had passed away the previous week, and ever since it was brought to our knowledge, we have been in a state of disbelief and grief as a result of the information. Mark was an avid supporter of both grassroots football and speedway racing, with speedway racing being his primary passion. However, Mark’s primary interest was in speedway racing. Mark’s biggest interest in life was playing amateur football. Mark may be described as a die-hard supporter of either of these two sports.
After the Rutherford second team moved across town under the direction of Sean Wilkinson, Mark volunteered to take over the post of football Secretary at Wallsend and did so for a number of years. During this time, Mark was in charge of the position. Mark was in charge of the Rutherford second team during those years, and he oversaw its transformation. During that time period, Mark was acting in the capacity of serving in this role. Mark’s never-ending enthusiasm for the game won him a place of respect and favor among the other players; they regarded him as a part of their group and considered him to be one of their own due to the fact that he shared their enthusiasm for the game.
He was loved by many people, and our thoughts are with those who were closest to him, especially his family and friends. Many people felt affection for him. He will be remembered fondly by many people. Many people will think of him kindly in the years to come. We are conscious of the fact that when our team won the County Cup and overcame NUWFC devs in our first season of competing for the cup, it was a huge triumph for Mark. This is something that we are all aware of. This was our first year competing for the cup, and it was a lot of fun! RIP Mark.
