Colin Legate RIP
Gresley Rovers Football Club, and everyone associated with it, are very saddened to learn that Colin Legate passed away this morning. Colin was known far and wide for his love of football and as well as his love for Gresley his other club was Woodville.
Colin was also know for being the "other half" of the Gresley Club raffle duo with the Club Chairman Mark Alflat.
Just before Christmas Colin was presented with a certificate and Club mementos to recognise all the work he has carried out at the Moat Ground over many years.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family brother Brian and sister-in-law Christine and all his many friends.
