Gloucester’s rugby community is mourning the loss of Jack Adams after the father-of-three passed away on Saturday after a battle with cancer.
The 34-year-old who made 35 appearances for the Cherry & Whites died on Saturday after a short and bravely fought battle with cancer.
Following his stint at Kingsholm, the centre went onto play for Moseley and Bristol, while also representing England Sevens over three seasons from 2007-2009.
Gloucester Rugby has issued the following statement: “Everyone connected to Gloucester Rugby is deeply saddened to hear the news of Jack Adams passing over the weekend.
“The outpouring of love and support from the wider rugby community over the last few days goes to show just how adored Jack was as a person.
“Jack was a local lad who lived his dream of representing his hometown Club. Jack came to Gloucester Rugby via the Academy, following his education at St Peters School and the centre made 35 appearances for the Club between 2005 and 2009.
“However, Jack’s dedication to rugby in his community didn’t stop there, his passion for the sport was passed through generations as he mentored and coached younger players to love the game in the same way he did.”
Jack is survived by his family including his three children, Alfie 13, Florence 9 and Tate 10 months.
The team at RUCK would like to send our heartfelt condolences to Jack’s family and friends at this difficult time.
