Legends Pay Tribute To John Mounteney

13 August 2014

Two Notts County legends have added their tributes to John Mounteney, who sadly passed away this week.

Don Masson said of his friend: “I first meet John in September 1968, after Bob Worthington and I signed for Notts County. John was Vice Chairman of the Supporters’ Centenary Club at that time and we immediately struck-up a friendship that was to last right till his untimely death.


“John's life revolved round Notts County and he had great pleasure recalling all the good times when we used to meet. Our families used to go on holiday together when the children were young and they also have remained friends with John, Daphne and Edward.


“My condolences and best wishes go to Daphne, Edward and all their family at this sad time.”


Don’s former team-mate Les Bradd added: “It was with great shock and sadness that I heard the news of the death of John Mounteney.


“As a former player and employee of the Club for nearly fifty years I have witnessed at first hand how much the Club meant to John and his wife Daphne.


“Throughout my playing days he would regularly talk to players after home matches in the Centenary Room, where he became a very active supporter and helped to raise valuable funds for the Club.


“He was instrumental in convincing Derek Pavis to take control of the Club when former chairman Jack Dunnett decided to sell and went on to provide vital support as vice chairman throughout some very successful times for Notts County.


“In more recent times, through good and bad times, John and Daphne would always be available at home matches to welcome guests of the Club, as well as the Club Vice Presidents and in particular former players when they attended matches.


“The passing of John will be a very sad loss to the Club and to all former players that enjoyed his friendship.”
