It's with great sadness that we have to tell you that long time United supporter Ron Newman, Uncle of Club Treasurer Steve Huxley, passed away suddenly on Friday afternoon. Ron had been an almost permanent fixture at home and away games for a number of years, and only missed 4 away games in 2 years because he was in hospital!
Ron was always a fiery character, and wanted the very best from "his" team at all times, but was really looking forward to what he considered to be an excellent young team moving forward this season.
Ron will be missed on the terraces and in the tea bar, but would be the first to tell the players to "get on with it and win something!!" The funeral arrangements will be published as we get them.
RIP Ron, we shall miss you
