Al Mather Day - Today Sat


Recommended Posts

always thanked folk for the work they did for the group yet him, Steve, Nicola, Carl and all the others went above and beyond.  Al really is going to be missed, the time and effort he put in was amazing as part of a great team.  R.I.P Al x

What horrible news to wake up to this morning.  I only met him about 18 months ago but he was lovely.  Passionate about BWFC and the effort he put in to the Rememberance Group was admirable.  

I'll miss chatting to him on matchdays.

Thoughts to his family and also the hundreds of friends he clearly had x

Spoke to him the other year and gave him some print advice, suggestions, recommendations, etc. Messaged him a few times here and there. And then finally met him on the coach to Sheff Weds this season. Wasn’t the picture of health, but had a cracking sense of humour on the day. Since met him again at the big Remembrance Evening at the stadium last September. (Might have those dates wrong way round).

Did so much for so many. A selfless man. A huge hole has now been created and will need some big boots to fill it for sure.

RIP Al. Another Wanderer taken too soon.

Chatted to Al at the remembrance do at Astley Bridge in August, thanked him for the work the group did but he was just so humble. It's not about me or the group but looking after the town of Bolton etc.

Not many people have my total respect having not met them very often and not knowing them on a personal level but Al did.

Can't really speak any higher than that from my personal point of view
