Old Meadonians are sad to report that Alan Pearce passed away last week after suffering a heart attack, having been ill for some time. Alan was a well-known and much loved figure within the football club and at the clubhouse. For many years he was part of the Riverside Lands maintenance team, spending many happy hours on his tractor, as well as the match day supervisor of the changing rooms and was a popular presence in the bar. Alan’s funeral will take place on Thursday 13th June at 1:20pm at Mortlake Crematorium and afterwards at the Boathouse. Our thoughts are with Norma and Tom at this sad time.
Congratulations to Meads' former top scorer Albert Adomah who helped Aston Villa, with their Championship play-off win at Wembley, to get back into the Premier Division. Having been promoted previously when playing for Middlesbrough Albert has now done it again. Albert is a splendid example how a player from the grass roots of football can make it all the way to the top.
