Sadly, our friend, ex Club Captain, team-mate and one of the founding members of Baycity Strollers Peter passed away in August aged just 68. Peter was passionate about Baycity and was a true gentleman on and off the pitch. He will be greatly missed by all at Baycity and the wider walking football community.
