Mike Baxter Faygate FC

It is with great sadness that the West Sussex Football league has advised that Mike Baxter; Secretary of Faygate United sadly passed away last week on Thursday 3rd July 2014.

Everyone at Lavant would recognise Mike’s friendly face every time we played our away fixture at Faygate and again also when he travelled to Lavant with the Faygate team for our home fixture.

Mike worked tirelessly behind the scenses for his beloved club Faygate FC and on match days he would be sorting out the changing rooms, marking the pitch, running the line during the game and manning the club bar after the game.

He even once very kindly lent Lavant an away old kit one season for a price, when David Kent turned up with the home kit instead of the away kit, which would have caused a major problem, as both sides play in yellow.

Mike’s funeral will be held on the 17th July at 2:15 pm at Surrey & Sussex Crematorium, Balcombe Road, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 3NQ.
