Altrincham Football Club is terribly saddened to bring you news of the passing of club icon, John King.
John passed away this morning, 7th February 2023.
Then-Joint Editor of The Robins' Review, Terry Rowley, wrote of John:
"John King is someone who needs no introduction to 'Alty' fans and is a man whose name will be forever linked with the history of Altrincham FC as a player, a manager, a director and one-time saviour of the club.
Every Altrincham fan has their favourite 'Kingy' memory (and let's be honest there were plenty of them).
John King will always be remembered at Moss Lane, a true Colossus and one worthy to stand in the pantheon of 'Alty' legends."
A full tribute will be added to the website to reflect on John's Altrincham career and his incomparable impact on our football club.
Our condolences go out to John's family, friends and fans who will undoubtedly share in grieving the loss of one of Altrincham's greatest.
