Newport mourns a talented rugby player

Written on March 25, 2021

A popular family man and talented rugby player has died and his funeral procession was seen off by hundreds of people as it passed through Newport.

Dalbag Singh, also known as Dave, died recently and although Covid lockdown restrictions meant the number of people that could attend his funeral was limited, many Newport people turned out as his procession travelled through the High Street.

Mr Singh came to Newport as a boy and studied at Burton Borough School, and later worked at Protolabs.

He joined Newport’s rugby union club in the 1970s and was well-liked and highly-rated by many teammates.
