8 November 2017

Yeovil Town is saddened to learn of the death of former Green and Whites Supporters Club chairman George Coggen.

Acting as the GWSC's chairman for a decade before stepping down in 2004, Mr. Coggen sadly passed away on Sunday at the age of 79.

Paul Hadlow, vice chairman of the GWSC has paid tribute to George:

"George was an avid YTFC supporter for many years, and virtually lived at the club at one time. He would arrange away travel and even drive minibuses to games.

"He took on managing tea-bars, general stadium maintenance and post-match cleaning - all voluntarily! He even looked after the club cat.

"Not everyone saw eye to eye with George but he had a good heart and great sense of humour. The GWSC send condolences to his family."

All at YTFC would like to pass on their deepest condolences to George's friends and family.
