FC Lakeside pay tribute to founder, Fred Pratt

FC Lakeside pay tribute to one of their greatest ever💙

 

We have received the very sad news that our club founder, Fred Pratt has passed away.
Fred has passed peacefully this afternoon.

Together with the late Les Whistler, they founded FC Lakeside in 1975.
How could they possibly of known, then, what they had started but they did and how we will always remember that.


Fred’s FC Lakeside, has given football to so many children and families over the years, something I know he and his son Brian Ralph were very proud of.


When Brian contacted the club with the sad news, he said how proud Fred was with the continued work we do and what we are achieving.


FC Lakeside will continue in the honour of Fred and remember that we are here today because of Fred and his enthusiasm to provide sport for youngsters.


The FC Lakeside DNA and club philosophy that he installed,

 

RIP Fred, your legacy lives on 💙⚽️💙⚽️💙⚽️💙⚽️💙
