Workington Town president Ken Wilson died yesterday following a short illness.
Mr Wilson was a massive Town fan and served the club as chairman and as a member of the board of directors for many years.
He was also a keen student of Town’s history and had an amazing recollection of players.
“There a huge sense of loss at the club at this sad news,” Town chairman Dave Bowden said.
“Ken was always there to help the club, particularly in helping to bring young local players to the club, a cause close to his heart.
“He supported the club through the good times and even more so through the bad times.
“You could guarantee when times got tough Ken would appear at an away fixture to show support and offer advice.
“The club has lost one of its most loyal stalwarts, and for many of us at the club a great friend. Our thoughts are with all of Ken’s nearest and dearest at this very sad time.”
