Derek Sharp 1933 - 2019


Salisbury Football Club is saddened to hear of the passing of 86 year old Derek Sharp, a long-term supporter who had fulfilled many roles during his involvement with the Club in its various forms over many years.

Mr Sharp served as Treasurer over a period of ten years, having joined the Club Management Committee in 1959, and became Club Secretary in 1970 for a period of some 13 years. During his time in this latter role, he was involved in the organization of the 1st Round FA Cup game against Millwall in the 1979/80 season played at Southampton FC's ground, the Dell. He also joined the Southern League Management Committee in 1978.

The Club sends its sincere condolences to his wife Renee, a willing volunteer helper for many years alongside Derek.
