    It is with deep regret that Sale announce the death of Richard Mitton, their longest serving member of the band.
    Richard played for Sale for over 60 years, working his way up to Principle Cornet and latterly on Percussion.
    He followed in the footsteps of his father Richard H Mitton who played for the band for 50 years.
    Richard worked tirelessly for the band, serving as Treasurer for 40 years and always made new players welcome to the band.
    To say he will be missed is an understatement, he is irreplaceable and the sad end of an era.
    The band send their deepest condolences to Marlene.

    I'm really sorry to hear this - Dick was not only a legend but also very friendly to the younger players like myself during my time at Sale.

    Very sad.
