Club Saddened By Passing of Peter Collins
Blackpool Football Club is deeply saddened to hear the news that former Club Secretary Peter Collins has passed away.
A born and bred Blackpool fan, Peter first became involved with commercial activities and the Centre of Excellence at the club before being appointed secretary, a role he fulfilled at Blackpool until September 2005.
His contribution to Fylde Coast football went further, however. He joined the Blackpool Fylde and Sunday Football Alliance committee in the 1968/69 season and dedicated his time to a variety of roles - press secretary, registrations secretary and league secretary. He was also awarded a 50-years service award from the Lancashire FA for his efforts.
The thoughts and condolences of all at Blackpool FC go out to Peter's wife Sheila, his sons Damian and Gavin, his daughter Gabrielle and the whole Collins family.
