Robin or Robbie Simmons was a stalwart of Aylesbury FC, and was with them from Stocklake to their current ground.


Chairman Danny Martone said: 

"He was responsible for a number of jobs over the years, including kitman for the first teams, securing the dressing rooms on match days, looking after the match and practice balls and generally anything that needed to be done

"He will be remembered for his cheeky Irish wit and humour, using this to great effect to help the referees and visiting teams feel at home.

"Robin was a willing volunteer, helping keep the club and grounds in good repair until ill health forced him to give this up a couple of years ago. Even though he was unable to participate in later years, Aylesbury FC remained a large part of his life.

"Robin will be greatly missed by his family, friends and all at the football club.

"Rest in peace Robin."
