In Loving Memory of
The news of the tragic passing of Dylan Rich on Sunday September 5th, after he fell ill in our FA Youth Cup game on Thursday, has left everyone involved with West Bridgford Colts FC devastated and heartbroken. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his parents Mike & Anna, his sister Lucy & Dylan’s family, friends and teammates.
The club would like to thank everyone within the Colts and wider football community for the hundreds of heartfelt messages and thoughts that we have received over the past few days. We have now set up this Book of Condolence so we can gather messages from the football family together in one place.
The ‘cultured left foot’ may be a football cliché, but it sums up Dylan to a tee. From a young age he was a talented all-round player, equally at home picking a pass, putting in a sturdy challenge or going on a trademark dribble. Last ditch tackles and calm finishes were both part of the package.
He was one of those players that team mates love for his commitment, coaches for his attitude and adaptability, and supporters for his reliability. A fantastic club player.
Rest in peace Dylan – your star will continue to shine.
