John Mounteney was a loyal Notts supporter of 68 years and a member of the club’s Board of Directors for more than 20 of them.
He traced becoming a Magpies fan to being taken to his first football match (at Meadow Lane) in 1946 and his support never wavered to the time of his death in 2014 at the age of 79.
He first became a director in 1980 when Jack Dunnett, a Nottingham Member of Parliament, was the club’s chairman.
John was appointed vice-chairman soon afterwards, remaining in that position right through the remainder of Mr Dunnett’s period in office.
When the club was sold to local businessman Derek Pavis in 1987 John was invited to continue as vice-chairman and he filled the role until there was another change of ownership in 2000.
His outstanding service to Notts County was recognised by his appointment as an Honorary Lifetime Vice-President.
