Tim Stevens, the General Manager of OURFC, made me aware of an article in therugbyjournal.com printed one year after Ian’s death.
It’s a hard read but leaves you understanding that Ian’s loss was felt by more than one ‘family’ and his memory will live on through many channels, notwithstanding the Ian Williams Foundation.

The University of Oxford RFC v The University of Swansea RFC.
On February 20th 2018 Ian Williams collapsed and died during a training session with Doncaster Knights.
As an incredibly well loved and respected member of OURFC for three years, Ian affected the lives of so many people within this club and the wider Oxford community.
Saturday, 16th June, in his honour, Iffley Road will host the first Ian ‘BGI’ Williams Memorial Match between his two former university sides, Swansea and Oxford, in aid of the Ian Williams ‘BGI’ foundation.
