We are very sad to hear of the passing of John Rooke, who has been our away travel coordinator throughout the season recently completed.
John was a long-standing supporter & had done a terrific job, in difficult circumstances, organising the away travel throughout the 2021/22 campaign. We were particularly grateful to John for volunteering his services, despite living in Market Drayton in Shropshire. Alty was a big part of John's life & he cared passionately about being the away travel coordinator, wanting to give something back to the team he loved
John passed away, suddenly, in his sleep last week & his funeral arrangements are as follows:-
Wednesday July 6th @2.30pm
co.uk/crematoria-and- cemeteries/crematoria/find-a- crematorium/telford- crematorium/
followed by a wake at John's favourite restaurant:-
The Taj Mahal, Wellington, Telford.
All Alty fans are welcome to attend, wearing club colours & any Alty fan who needs transport to the funeral, can contact Brian Flynn
Sincere condolences to Freya, Isaac, Sarah & Verity at this very sad time.
