Marking the passing of club founder Bob Forrester

Posted on

The club was saddened to hear of the passing of founder and inaugural club chairman Bob Forrester who passed away on 7th August at the age of 84.

Setting the tradition which has sustained the club, Bob was a parent whose kids and their friends wanted to extend their enjoyment of football from outside of school to play at the weekends.

After Bob initially set up away friendlies via personal contacts, the club was formally established under Bob’s leadership for the 1979-80 season and 44 years on, here we are on the eve of another new season in 2023-24.

All those of us who have coached and managed teams for Brockham over the years have followed in Bob’s footsteps. All those who have played in our black and white stripes have worn a kit that Bob chose.

We send our best wishes to Bob’s family and close friends at this time and thank Bob for his contribution to our club and community.

Rest In Peace.
