Dave McGinlay RIP

It is with great sadness that we have heard of the passing of Ramsbottom United supporter Dave McGinlay.

He passed away last week following a very short battle with cancer, which was only diagnosed a week previously.  He was peaceful and free of pain. 

His funeral will take place on Tuesday 20th July at Radcliffe Crematorium at 1.30pm following by refreshments at Red Hall on Manchester Road, Walmersley.
If you wish to attend the funeral, please contact his daughter Katie ASAP by commenting if you are able to attend (stating funeral and/or wake) so that they can plan the ceremony accordingly and book the correct capacity of room for the wake.
The family ask that people do not wear black; instead wear blues as they were David's favourite colour, and he absolutely despised suits as he spent most of his life in one. So smart casual please!
Please don't send flowers, we instead ask for donations to Rammy Men - a group that he loved and enjoyed (link in the comments).

Sad news, but glad he wasn't in pain. Dave was a lovely man. He was Treasurer when we restarted the Supporters' Club.

(Different Katie in case anyone was wondering.)
