Club Announcement: Martin Carter

St Ives Town Football Club is today mourning the loss of lifelong supporter Martin Carter who passed away on Monday night.

Chairman Paul Reason said “The passing of Martin is devastating news and a shock for everyone who knew him.  Not only was he a popular and well known figure at the club but one of the most dedicated and loyal fans as he hardly ever missed a first team game either home or away.  On behalf of everyone at St Ives Town, I would like to offer our sincere condolences to Janet, Steve and his family at such a sad time.  As a club, we will be paying our respects prior to the final game of the season against Alvechurch on Saturday”.

The club is aware that many supporters will be wanting to attend the funeral, and these details will be announced in due course.
