The club were devastated to hear the news today that its Chaplain, the great Rev Arthur Bowles had passed away on the 19 January 2021. Arthur became the club chaplain in February 2015, and has provided wonderful support to the club in the past 6 years as a loyal supporter, committee member and so much more, to so many.

His connection with the club goes so much further, and his link to the local area runs deep for so many. This is such a difficult loss to deal with at this awful time. There are few who get talked about with the reverence he holds in the local area, and many are hurting with the news today. No more so than the wonderful family he leaves behind, who the club will support in any way we can in the coming weeks and months.

We will look to honour the life of Arthur when we resume football activity in the coming months, and discussions will take place within the club to work out how we can do justice to the life of such a great man, who has positively touched the lives of so many in the local area and within our club.
