Neil’s funeral will take place on Friday 10th March at Coundon Crematorium at 10 o’clock.

All the club Directors, and I am sure I speak for all the Shildon AFC fans, would like to offer our deepest condolences to Neil’s family at this sad time and our thoughts and hearts are with them.

Neil was hugely respected by everyone that has played for the club and I am sure everyone will always remember his dry sense of humour.
