Cambridge City Football Club is today mourning the loss of supporter Phil Moore who was tragically killed in a car crash early this morning.
Phil was a lifelong supporter of the Lilywhites and had many friends at the club. Always a regular at home games, and many away fixtures Phil was incredibly passionate and loyal to the club and was desperate for City to succeed. He would speak to many about his fond memories of years gone by when City would attract several thousand supporters during the 1960’s to their old Milton Road ground, and like many others was looking forward with excitement to the new ground being built at Sawston.
City Vice-Chairman, Terry Dunn who was also a long standing friend of Phil said “I speak on behalf of everyone connected with Cambridge City when I say how shocked, stunned and saddened we are with regards the tragic death of Phil Moore. Phil was known to many of our supporters by first of all being a loyal fan on the terrace but also as Chairman of the old Supporters Club during the 1990’s. Phil would often talk about his first visit to Milton Road which was the inaugural floodlight game against West Ham United in February 1959. Over the years he would volunteer for various roles at the club and I can remember when I first knew him he would travel all the way from his home in March to do decorating tasks at the club during the summer. He would support social events and also worked as a turnstile operator and loved the big games and would wear his City scarf with great pride. He simply loved Cambridge City. He was so looking forward to the new ground at Sawston and I am just so sad and devastated that the club has not just lost such a dedicated supporter, but also one who will not be there with everyone else to see the launch of a new era for the club”.
“He was one of the best, a true gentleman who had time for everyone. There are no words for his family, friends, and colleagues but we share in their grief and we send our sincere condolences and our thoughts and prayers are with them at such a difficult time”.
There will be a minutes silence prior to the home game against Sutton Coldfield on Saturday afternoon.
