Following several months of poor health, and only last week a diagnosis of cancer, Mike passed away on Sunday evening 18th February. Our immediate thoughts, and all our love and condolences, go to his partner Sam and his daughter Abbie, as well as to other members of Mike's family.

For 26 years until stepping down last week, Mike was CEO of Langney Sports and Eastbourne Borough Football Club. That slightly pompous title utterly belied the unfussy, grounded and humble man that Mike was. We have this week lost a wonderful and tireless administrator, a wise counsellor, a man of integrity, energy, dedication and humour. We have lost a pillar of our football club, and a man without whose foresight and commitment this club would simply not be where it is today. And we have lost a dear friend.

Many tributes were made to Mike last week, on his retirement as CEO and we know that in the coming days, there will be a flood of further tributes and memories. For the moment, we are united in sorrow.
