We are very sorry to have to tell you of the passing of Bob Nancollis on the evening of Thursday, 29th April at the age of 74. Bob was a Wittoner all his life & initially used to go to matches with his Dad & brothers. Since that time he came to games with his daughter & Grandson, & was often joined by his nephew as well. Bob was a season ticket holder, he was loyal to the Albs but above all that he was a great bloke who will be sadly missed by his family & friends. RIP Bob.
Very sad news, I will miss our chats at the game Bob was a great guy and our thoughts go out to all his family and friends at this sad time.
RIP Bob UTA
When know one else can understand me! When everything I do is wrong! You give me hope and consolation! You give me the strengh to carry on! And I`ll never know the reason why i love you like I do ! Witton Albion!! The wonder of you!!!
Quite agree Colin. There will be a few more spaces on the terraces post Covid and none more sadly missed than Bob, a hugely talented guy and a great supporter of our team. Condolences to all the family.
Bob's funeral will take place on Tuesday 18th May but space is very limited due to Crematorium space & Social Distancing guidelines. The service is also being screened online and people should contact Verity Nancollis via her Facebook page for further details. Donations are being received in memory of Bob, for the following: Cancer Research UK, Christie Hospital & Witton Albion Football Club.
