The Club have, this morning, been saddened to learn of the death of our former player Jackie Foster. Jackie was a member of the team in the mid 1980’s, he was a fundamental member of the side that won the Northern League title in the 1984/1985 season under manager Brian Newton. The team were also won the Durham Challenge Cup that year.
Jackie also organised and coached a Bishop Auckland Juniors side in the mid 1990’s.
Our thoughts are with Jackie’s wife Ann and their sons Paul and Lee. The Club plans to dedicate our FA Cup match against Ossett Albion on Saturday September 3rd to Jacky when we will also hold a minute’s silence before the game in his memory.
