Admiration for Ralph Farmer

It is with great sadness that we hear of Ralph Farmer's passing. He has died at only 59 years of age and we send our heart felt sympathy to his family. Ralph was a dedicated volunteer and a founder member of FC Phoenix. His contribution to our football in the community was recognised when FC Phoenix gained the local FA Charter Standard Club award in Hereford. It was awarded for offering the best practice standards of coaching and safeguarding of children outside of the Football League and was for quality and improving the playing experience for all. Ralph initiated girl’s football in Herefordshire, set up the FC Phoenix Disability Development Centre and was awarded with the Queens Award for Voluntary Work.

Donations are welcome for a memorial bench which can be sent to Shayne Hogg Funeral Services. His funeral will be at 1.30pm Wednesday 26th October 2016 at Hereford Crematorium where visitors are encouraged to where something colourful.

From all at FC Phoenix
