Derek Metcalfe

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Derek Metcalfe passed away peacefully last night.

Derek’s involvement at the club was varied and covered many years.  He was a honorary life member, former committee member and club historian but above all he was a true supporter of the club and the opportunities it provides to the community.

Derek and his wife Joan followed the club home and away and it won’t be the same looking around the ground and not seeing Derek there.

I had personally known Derek for many years and can only echo the sentiments from those who knew him and spent time with him that he was a true gentleman.

Our thoughts are with Joan and the family at this time.
