Len Cordell and John Cooper R.I.P.

We mourn the passing of two former Isthmian League stalwarts

Over the weekend the Isthmian League were informed of the sad passing of both Len Cordell and John Cooper.

Len was previously Matchday Secretary at Redbridge FC, and was involved in Essex football for more than five decades; indeed he was still a big part of the club up until very recently.

John was for many years Club Secretary at Bromley, and also served as a Director of the Isthmian League during the latter part of the twentieth century.

We'd like to send our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Len and John, who were much loved and respected and an enormous part of our Non League football community.

Where next?
