Former Wasps player dies suddenly, aged 69

Wasps have announced the tragic death of former player Allan Isichei.

A grandfather and part-time rugby coach, Allan was stabbed to death while walking home from his local pub in Southall, west London on Saturday evening.

Isichei, 69, spent many years at Wasps FC, playing as a prop for the first-team in the 1970s and 80s before going into coaching.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to Allan’s wife Sandra, children Emma, Daniel and David, along with all his other family and friends during this difficult time. 

Detectives have arrested a man in his 30s on suspicion of murder. He was held in hospital overnight with minor injuries, Scotland Yard said.
