It is with great sadness that ‘Boro announce the passing on Monday morning of supporter and  club volunteer Russell Turner.

Russell bravely fought a long term illness, but did not stop this from leading a full life.

A dedicated family man, in 2009 he joined the club as a voluntary administration officer giving many hours to the club, and his contributions can still be seen at the club today.

‘Boro Chief Executive Steve Duly commented “We are deeply saddened by the news, Russ was well respected around the club, and one of the most genuine people you could ever have the pleasure of meeting, he did not allow his illness to get the better of him, and true to the kind of man he was, he was one of the first people to contact me and welcome me back to the club when I returned last year.

My thoughts and those of all of us at the club are with his Family who he adored and Friends at this sad time.

Rest in Peace my friend.”
