Lydd Town boss Liam Smith pays tribute to Rob Flisher: Rob had the clubs best interest at heart 24-7 and we will take some time to get over this awful piece of news
LYDD TOWN manager Liam Smith has paid tribute to Rob Flisher, who sadly passed away last Wednesday.
Mr Flisher was the clubs treasurer and bar manager at The Lyndsey Field club, who are currently in thirteenth-place in the Southern Counties East Football League First Division table.
“This week the club said goodbye to an individual, who by no stretch of the imagination will be remembered as a legend,” said Smith.
“Rob Flisher was a key player at this football club. The many hundreds of hours he spent at the ground has allowed Lydd Town FC to function effectively for some time now.
“As well as helping with the finances, he was also there behind the bar helping out at home games as well as supporting the boys and he wasn’t done there as he also gave up his time in supporting local events, which the club have hosted.
“I don’t remember an individual who has visited Lydd Town Football Club and not remembered Rob as an extremely welcoming and humble human being who went out of his way to ensure everyone was looked after.
“As the weeks go by, they’ll be no doubt be a part of the furniture missing with Rob not there and I can assure everyone it’ll be a huge difficult task to find someone who had Rob’s passion and drive in wanting to witness the club be successful both on and off the pitch.
“Rob had the clubs best interest at heart 24-7 and we will take some time to get over this awful piece of news.
“Both our thoughts and our prayers are with Rob’s family at this awful time and we will do all that we can to ensure Rob’s legacy lives on within this football club.”
