It is with great sadness and regret that we have to report our club stalwart and legend, George Anthony Foster, known to all as “Brummie” passed away last night.
Brum had been closely associated with the club for many years, mostly in his role of groundsman, and was well known throughout football circles, He never forgot a face, and was welcomed at the many away grounds he visited, having built up friendships with rival supporters, players and officials. His depth of knowledge of all things Flint Town United was incredible, and he was an avid collector of programmes.
During his years as groundsman, the upkeep of the pitch was his pride and joy, and woe betide any person who strayed onto it without his permission !
He was a larger than life character, and loved the post match gatherings in the Social Club, where he mixed and mingled with everyone.
It goes without saying that he leaves a massive hole in the fabric of Flint Town United and will be sadly missed by all connected to the club.
We shall be honouring Brum at this afternoon’s game against Connah’s Quay Nomads, so please come down and pay your respects to the great man.
Also, in our next home game against Aberystwyth on the 6th January we shall be carrying a full tribute to Brum in our match day programme
