FCC are very sad to report that one of the club’s great characters, Tony Botting passed away this morning.
Father of FCC stalwarts, Nigel and Gary and husband of Margaret, Tony umpired at the club for approximately 5 years after playing for local teams Broadwater, Pathfinder and Ham Sports in the evening league. A fierce competitor on and off the field and a formidable presence as an umpire, Tony had a great sense of humour and was an avid supporter of the club in his later years. He will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time. Details of the funeral will be provided in due course.
