Fleetwood Town's Vice President Ted Lowery has sadly passed away.

Lowery, 87, was held in great affection by all at the club where he had volunteered since 1978, but sadly passed away this morning after a short illness.

Always on hand with a smile, a cup of tea or a handful of sweets for the players that have graced the Highbury pitch over the years Lowery has been a constant figure at the club for the last 40 years.

Lowery has been involved with the club through highs and lows from the reformation of the club as Fleetwood Wanderers in 1997 to one of his proudest days watching Town get promoted to League One at Wembley in 2014.

He missed the FA Cup tie with Leicester City and a reunion with former Town hot-shot Jamie Vardy in January also due to illness.
