The club is saddened to hear that Martin Dawkins has passed away.
He is fondly remembered as a “lovely bloke”, and a major part of the club for many years, who was instrumental in girls and ladies football in the club and indeed we may not have had these without his tireless efforts. Martin did a huge amount for many people and had sadly been ill for a number of years but he took his diagnosis in amazing spirit and made the most of those last couple of years, somehow managing to be positive throughout, and getting to see his beloved Bournemouth doing so well in these last few years.
Our thoughts are with Martins family at this sad time.
RIP Martin…alongside Will Murray and Tim Dunne, that’s three great WBC volunteers gone way too soon in the last couple of years.
