Tributes paid to John Rose

Sad death of long-serving Boston Town official

Tributes have been paid to Boston Town stalwart John Rose, who has died in hospital.
 
He was a club official for nearly 30 years, acting as director, secretary and vice-chairman at different times.
 
Poachers chairman Mick Vines, who is John's brother-in-law, said his death was a massive loss.
 
"He will be missed terribly. Even after he had officially stepped down from his role because of ill health, he continued to help out behind-the-scenes," said Mick.
 
"He loved his football and wanted to carry on doing his bit. John wasn't just a brother-in-law to me, he was always the person I turned to first when I needed help. I don't know what we'll do without him."
 
John, who died at Pilgrim Hospital on Saturday, wrote match reports for the Boston Standard for several years and was also involved in many off-the-field activities such as fundraising events and negotiations over the future of the DWB Stadium.
 
The club held a minute's silence in his honour before their home game against Wellingborough at the weekend.
