Boro will hon­our Boys legacy

Rossendale Free Press - - Sport -

SHELDAN KEAY BACUP Bor­ough man­ager Brent Peters in­sists the foot­ball club will con­tinue to hon­our Brian Boys’ legacy through­out the fu­ture.

Boys sadly passed away last week, hav­ing been a huge part of Bacup Bor­ough since 1997.

“I will en­sure Brian Boys’ legacy will re­main al­ways. Such is the man­ner of the man Brian was, that 20 years on, Boys as a com­pany still play a mas­sive part in the club’s his­tory,” he said. “A sta­dium named after the great man him­self, the Boys brand logo on the front of not only our se­nior team shirts but that of all our youth team shirts, Bacup Bor­ough Foot­ball Club are proud to be Boys.

“Brian ac­cepted my in­vi­ta­tion to be­come an of­fi­cial part­ner of Bacup Bor­ough Foot­ball Club. I was and will al­ways be, both proud and priv­i­leged to be as­so­ci­ated with not only a re­spected fam­ily busi­ness, but equally to be able to call upon the help, ad­vice and guid­ance of Brian Boys was in­valu­able. Brian was a truly great man – when peo­ple say there would not be a Bacup Bor­ough Foot­ball Club but for Brent Peters, I say there would not be a Bacup Bor­ough Foot­ball Club but for the back­ing of Brian and the Boys.”

Bacup play at Abbey Hul­ton United on Satur­day.
