the club have announced that former vice chairman, Martin Voakes, died earlier today after a long illness.

deepest sympathies with his family.

Martin had been a close friend and colleague of Graham Firth. He became vice chairman in 2006 and was instrumental in bringing in Simon Turfrey to help sort out the club finances when we were struggling in the 2006-07 season.

My own favourite memory of Martin was in the clubhouse when the FA Cup final between Liverpool and West Ham was on, Martin was a Liverpool fan and he was on form that day as Liverpool came from behind to win. As Liverpool lifted the cup, Martin ran around the club sticking up two fingers at everyone else (including me), then he jumped on the seat in front of the tv to celebrate, lost his balance and knocked over a table full of pints. Immediately apologetic, he cleared up the mess and bought fresh drinks for the startled customers at that table. :mrgreen:

What a crap year this has been.
