It is with great sadness that we have to tell you all of the heartbreaking passing of Derek Badger, who unfortunately lost his battle with cancer this morning.

Derek was a much loved character around the club, and was a dedicated volunteer and employee here at Sandy Lane.

As many of you had noticed, Derek hadn’t been around for a while, but he had been keeping in touch and had asked that we kept his illness private, which we honoured.

He will be missed terribly by all of us here at Worksop Town FC, and we know he will be missed by the many friends he made here in Worksop, both through his football links and his church ones.

Derek was a kind hearted gent, who would do anything for anyone, but he also had a very mischievous streak which we will miss so much.

On Saturday 16th March we will be holding a minutes silence in Dereks memory, and we ask that you would all take part in this with us.

Rest In Peace Derek
