The Chairman and the board of Directors are very sad to announce the passing of one of our oldest and long standing supporters ,John Collins who died on Wednesday aged 91.
John first came to the Pilot Field in 1947 after being demobbed from the army and was ever present for the next 70 years. Passionate about his football , John was well known at the ground by many supporters, for his humour, good nature and of course - the famous sound of his bell.
We pass on our sincere condolences to his wife Brenda, his children Mick,Jenny and Dave and all his family.
We will be holding a minutes applause prior to kick off at the home game against Corinthian Casuals on Saturday as a mark of respect and gratitude for his life.
