We have received news of the death of John Booth, on 26th February at the age of 93. John was a founder member of the Stags Supporters Club.

We received the following from John's sons Andrew and Jonathan, and we send our condolences to John's family.

John (who before retiring had been the Headmaster at Moor Lane Junior School in Mansfield) had been a Stags supporter for 50 years since moving to the area. He started with our Mum, Gladys, the Stags Supporters Club following our relegation from the old Division 2. Please find attached an article from the CHAD about this which may also be of interest (shown below). With his family (wife Gladys and sons Andrew and Jonathan) he was a regular attender at both home and away matches and even when his health prevented him from attending he often wrote to the papers and local MP promoting the club and its importance in the Community.

John's funeral is on 12th March at Sherwood Forest Crematorium - Ollerton @ 9.45am followed by a refreshments at Big Barn Lane Methodist Church Mansfield from 11.00am. Any supporters who knew John will be most welcome at either.
