We received the sad news last week that Ashford Town Chairman Dave Baker had passed away after losing his fight with cancer. Dave was much loved by all at the Robert Parker Stadium, but he was not only a great servant to his club but also to the world of Non League football. We all mourn the passing of one of our own, and would like to pass our most sincere condolences to Dave's family and friends.
Alan Constable, club Vice President & Director, has been in touch with the following details for Dave's funeral:
Dave Baker’s funeral will take place on Monday 9 July at midday at Hanworth Crematorium. The procession will leave Ashford Town Football Club at 11.am for anyone who wishes to follow the main car.
Dave was very clear in his instructions in that he asked Ashford people if they would wear Ashford clothing if possible, such as club ties, tops, polos etc. but entirely your choice. Dave also requested no flowers but donations to his favourite charity, HASAG, can be made on the day.
Dave’s family invites you to the wake to be held afterwards at Ashford Town (Mx) FC (Robert Parker Stadium, Short Lane, Stanwell, TW19 7BH) when everyone is welcome.
The Club would like to thank so many of our fellow clubs and Dave’s many friends in football for their messages of condolence following news of his sad death on Wednesday 20 June 2018. Too many to mention but all greatly appreciated.
