Alan Meredith – R.I.P

Football lost a good friend last week when Birchencliffe's Alan Meredith passed away following a long illness.

Alan spent many years helping youngsters to play football and was the driving force in setting up Birchencliffe JFC.

He also spent several years as a member of the League Management Committee where his knowledge and experience was highly respected.

Football and Birchencliffe JFC will be the poorer for his loss.
