Remembering Ernie Rowe

It was on this day in September 1944 that the Cambridge Town FC player Ernie Rowe died in action during World War Two. Ernest George Rowe was a Sergeant in The Royal Welch Fusiliers and is buried at Groesbeek Cemetary near Nijmegen on the Dutch/German border.

Ernie played alongside his brother Dan during the 1937-38 season and adding a handful of appearances in 1940 played 22 games for the club.

We will remember them.

This article was provided by club historian, Neil Harvey. Neil is writing a piece for the match programme about brothers who have played for City - something that is quite relevant this year given that Nathan & Andre Olukanmi and Ben & Joe Robinson are currently part of the squad.
