Neil MacKinnon 1946 – 2022
It is with sadness that we have learned of the death of Neil MacKinnon, player, supporter, businessman and a colourful character during his long association with the club. As a player, he was a strong and competitive scrum half who played at every level from first to fourth team. Which ever side he played for he set new standards in style usually arriving in a Porsche and dressed for the occasion. The scrum half tradition has been carried on by his family, son Miles and grandson Harrison who is a member of our successful Under 18 Colts team. Neil was also stepfather to Tony Allan, a leading supporter and sponsor of Canterbury rugby.
Neil, who was 75, died while visiting Cuba. Our sympathies for their loss go to Miles and his family, Tony and James.
