Peter Collar, the former Ogbourne Downs and Broome Manor assistant, was killed in a road accident on the A429 road between Cheltenham and Swindon, just after Christmas.
He first played as a teenager at Broome Manor, and became an assistant with former club professional Colin Harraway at Ogbourne Downs before re-joining Broome Manor.
He was initially an assistant and then teaching professional for six years under Barry Sandry, before becoming a coach at Scott Cranfield’s academy in Reading two years ago.
Sandry said: “Jack loved teaching and was well liked by everyone. He was establishing himself with Scott and news of his death shocked everyone.”
