Non-League football wouldn`t survive without a handful of people who work tirelessly for their respective clubs.
However, Midland League Division One club Southam United sadly report the passing of a man rightly known as `Mr Southam United`.
Chairman Charles Hill announced: “It is with great sadness that I bring you the news of the passing away of Bobby Hancocks, who died yesterday.
“Bobby had for over 60 years been a committed player, official and supporter of the club, having played over 1,000 games and scored over 1,000 goals.
“He had done virtually every job in the club and latterly took charge of the ground maintenance until ill-health forced him to retire from these duties.
“He loved coming to support the club and we were lucky to have him.
“we offer our support and best wishes to Bobby’s wife Anne and family – we have lost a true gent”.
