In Loving Memory – Graham Hastings

Barton Town Football Club are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of club volunteer Graham Hastings.

If you have ever been to the Easy Buy Stadium you will have met Graham, he was our raffle ticket seller, but he was more than that. He was a great friend, and always had a smile on his face and a chat while walking around the ground with his raffle bucket.

Graham was one of our most dedicated volunteers, as along with the raffle he was also in charge of our 200 Club. He was always happy to help when anything needed doing at the ground, and was a volunteer at the club for many years.

Our next home game against Hemsworth Miners Welfare on Saturday 2nd January will be dedicated to Graham and his memory. There will be a minute’s silence prior to the game too as we remember one of our own.

This year we have lost former club President Denis Cox and Paula Taylor, wife of club Director Owen, and now Graham. All three of them will be dearly missed.

As a club we all send our deepest condolences and best wishes to Graham’s family, friends and loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.

Rest in Peace Graham, you will never be forgotten.

  4. I can’t believe it I am so saddened to hear this news. Such a lovely man and great to talk to about old times he had playing and watching football. I was fortunate enough to travel to a couple of away matches watching Old Boys and him telling me all sorts of stories. He will be sorely missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. RIP Graham
