Benjamin Timothy Hinchliffe Jago 1999-2013

The Dragons express their condolences to the Jago family in this very sad time. Ben will be missed by all at the club where his athletic abilities and speed on the court where hallmarks of his game. An extraordinary leap enabled him to play taller than his stature and kept opposition defence on their toes.

Ben has been with the club for over five years and proudly represented the Dragons from U12 – U16 with the Jago family part of the fabric of our community where brother Ryan and sister Gillian have played with the club.

The Dragons pride themselves on being a tight knit family oriented club and the devastation of the news of Ben’s tragic passing was felt at Sunday’s training session of U16 boys, his team mates gathered at center court at the commencement of training to hear of Ben’s accident and spend a few minutes as a group thinking of Ben and his family.

The heart wrenching loss of a talented sportsman taken before his time without being given the chance to mature and enjoy his youth is felt across the club and the Dragon spirit goes out to the Jago family.

As a sign of respect the club will don armbands on Friday 8th November at all games and will also show a sign of respect with a minutes silence before tip off.

Rest peacefully Ben on behalf of the Dragon community.
