Club’s tribute to ‘Jasper’

BUXTON Football Club has paid tribute to former player and director Brian “Jasper” Goodwin, whose funeral took place last week.

The club said: “The funeral of Brian Goodwin last Monday filled Burbage Church to overflowing, showing the regard in which he was held in the community.

“Directors, supporters and former players of the club turned out to honour Jasper who had played for Buxton in his youth, had been a director and vice president for the last decade and had been a most generous benefactor to the club over many years.

“His presence will be much missed at the Silverlands.”
