Mike Tull
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Mike Tull, our much loved and highly respected Club Secretary of 27 years in office. After being taken ill earlier in the week, with his family around him Mike passed away peacefully on Saturday morning 21st November 2015.

He will be sorely missed for his knowledge, manner, patience and sense of humour by all those that knew him at the Club and those involved in local grassroots football. Our thoughts are with Mike’s family at this sad time. Rest in peace Mike a true gentlemen you will be greatly missed.

We’re raising £1,000 to donate to the ICU Dept, Royal Berks Hospital because new equipment is vital to save lives!
