TRIBUTES have been made to another loyal Caernarfon Town FC stalwart who died last week.

Bob Bryant, who had been an avid follower of the Canaries for many years, lost his life following a long illness.

Mr Bryant held a number of positions at the club, from running the canteen to selling lottery tickets as he looked to lend his support to the set-up in any way possible.

He was also a prominent member of the committee put together by Jack Thomas to revive the club in 1976.

A Caernarfon Town FC spokesman, said: “Those of us who saw Bob's smile after the match will know that his feelings for the club were as strong as ever.

“Bob will be missed dearly at the Oval and we wish to send our deepest condolences to all his family, which of course includes his daughter Bethan and her husband Andy, who are present members of our Board.”

Despite his health problems over recent years, Mr Bryant still managed to see his beloved Cofis in action and was a regular at The Oval, getting to see Town finally achieve their elusive promotion to the JD Welsh Premier League in a memorable Huws Gray Alliance title winning campaign last term.

He was also present for the recent top-flight victory over Cardiff Met, where Mr Bryant saw his side continue their excellent start to the season with a win.

Manager Sean Eardley, added: “I am seriously devastated. I spoke to this great man after the Cardiff Met game.

“My team possess fight, but we will fight even more from now until the end of the season.”

Club director Bethan Fôn Bryant-Roberts, said: “He will be forever remembered as the Cofi mad supporter who, apart from family loved nothing more in life than contributing to and following his beloved club Caernarfon Town.”
