Leicester Tigers have been saddened to learn of the death of Anita Matthews, wife of the club's record appearance-holder and former president David Matthews.

A popular and friendly member of the Leicester Tigers family, Anita was a regular visitor to Welford Road and passionate in her support of the team over a number of years. She will be missed by all who knew her at the club.

Anita provided tremendous support for David during his time as a member of the general committee and then the board of directors and also during his tenure as club president.

All of the directors, officials, players and staff at Leicester Tigers send their sincere condolences to David and to the rest of the family.
