Everybody at Yeovil Town Football Club has been deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Bruce James from our football family.

Bruce, who was 76, became a much-loved figure around Huish Park following more than a decade of service in a multitude of roles and responsibilities. 

Most recently, Bruce acted as the Players' Liaison Officer and Disabled Liaison Officer, working tirelessly for the benefit of others. 

An integral part of the day-to-day running of the club, Bruce brought a smile to the face of all who enjoyed the pleasure of his company. 

Having endured a life-changing experience together nine years ago, manager Darren Way developed a unique bond with Bruce. 

He said: "You're remembered for the legacy you leave behind, and everyone will remember Bruce as an unbelievable ambassador for the football club but more so a warm, selfless individual who had time for all.

"He would do anything for anyone and will be missed by so many. God bless, Bruce."

Having been taken ill, Bruce passed away peacefully on Christmas Eve surrounded by family and friends.

The thoughts of everybody at Yeovil Town are with Bruce’s loved ones at this incredibly sad time.
