We are saddened to report the passing of former League president Norman Bunton, aged 89. It has been a difficult couple of days for the AFA family with the news coming soon after that of Ian Charles' passing, yesterday.
"Bunny" was born in 1928 and joined Old Westminster Citizens in 1946 playing as goalkeeper in the 1st and 2nd XIs for many years. He joined the SAL Management Committee in 1972 and served as president from 2007-2010 overseeing the historic victory in the FA Inter-League Cup in 2008.
Norman Bunton was every bit the model clubman and league officer, dedicating the majority of his life to the running and promotion of amateur football. He will be sadly missed by all in the AFA family. Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this time.
UPDATE 11/10/2017: The Funeral will take place at 12.45 on Wednesday 25th. October, at:
Elmers End Road
Beckenham BR3 4TD
Afterwards, there will be a gathering at:
Bromley Court Hotel
Bromley BR1 4JD.
The family have decided on no flowers (other than family), but if anyone wants to make a donation, it should be made to the RAF Benevolent Fund, online, or by cheque at the crematorium or by post to RAF Benevolent Fund, Hyde Park Corner, Green Park, London, SW1X 7LY.
