Today is the "Final Whistle" for a long term stalwart at Stanway Rovers Football Club as, today, we say a loving goodbye to one of our own, Peter Cracknell.

Peter Cracknell passed away on Sunday the 11th February 2024 with his family at his side.


He had been involved with Stanway from the 1970’s when, after refereeing a local fixture, he would pop in for post match refreshment.


He became involved with Stanway Rovers shortly after joining the management committee. During his time with Stanway he held the positions of Treasurer, General Secretary and then Chairman.


Peter was also a trustee of the loan during the construction of the New Club Premises.


He worked tirelessly for the club and was ever present at work parties, helping to create the pitch (stone picking etc). He was also the club quiz master on many occasions plus participating in numerous other tasks.


Peter will be sorely missed by all at Stanway Rovers.


All our thoughts are with Jill and the family.


Peters Funeral will take place today, Friday 15th March, at Colchester Crematorium at 1-45pm. His wake will follow at Stanway Rovers Football Club, 50 New Farm Road, Colchester, CO3 OPG
