Dennis Smith

Post  porrohman on Tue Sep 06, 2011 2:37 am

It is with deep regret I have to announce the passing of one of the clubs Honourary Life members, Dennis Smith.
Dennis Smith did so much work for the club over the years, along with his brother Jack and Howard Grubb, and will forever be remembered by Redditch United for all his help. Last year we did an article in the programme on Dennis, Jack, and Howard, I will ask the club to re print shortly so everyone can see just how much Dennis contributed to the history of our club.
Dennis Smith RIP.

I've been on here in the past about an OAP who gave me twenty pounds and told me to keep it quiet when I was on the TRUST table outside the club shop.I didn't name him then. That man was Dennis. He also used to give Kimbo the odd tenner after that as well. It showed by his donations to the TRUST just how much he actually cared for the club.

This is scheduled for the FA Cup game a week Saturday at home to Hednesford, Black arm bands will be worn both On Tuesday's Home Game and The Saturday Vs Hednesford. After the Game at some point we hope to have a fans forum so no rushing off home guy's.

1 of lifes true gents, and a Reds man through and through.. I used to love to give him stick about the state of the pitch when he was down there,and in the Mayfly when I seen him there. He always took it in the way it was meant a joke and a bit of a wind up.. As I said 1 of lifes true gents, and I shall miss giving him some stick.. God bless ya den, A reds man till the end..
