Boro will honour Boys legacy
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.
