Boreham Wood FC were saddened this week to learn of the death of John D. Gill, formerly the club’s Programme Editor and Press Secretary. John passed away on Sunday 17 October 2021 after a long illness. 

John joined the club in 1980 and continued in his role until the summer of 2015. During that time, he produced countless hundreds of match day programmes, updated the press on club news and kept meticulous statistics about each season’s results.

Although John left the club in 2015, he served us in an exemplary fashion for 35 years and is fondly remembered by Chairman Danny Hunter, the club’s Directors and many of our long-serving support staff and fans.

The date for John’s funeral has not yet been set but the club will, of course, be represented.

A full tribute to John will appear in the matchday programme for the game against Southend United on Saturday 30 October.

In the meantime, the club sends its sincere condolences to John’s wife, Diane, and his family and friends.

Rest in peace, John D. Gill!
