Derek Gill passes away
It is with great sadness that we learned today of the passing of former Burnley Football Club director Derek Gill.
Derek joined the board in the early 1980s having examined the financial mess left by Bob Lord. He was a member of the board during the ill fated John Bond era.
When chairman John Jackson stood down in 1985 he was expected to assume the position himself but surprised everyone by resigning his position on the board although a return could have occurred when he led a group looking to take on the now stricken club under the Frank Teasdale administration.
Derek was very much a committed Claret while also a devoted family man and our thoughts are today with his family and friends following his passing at the age of 87.Follow UpTheClarets:
