We are shocked and deeply saddened to report that former Notts County Chief Executive Officer Gary Townsend has passed away suddenly whilst on holiday in Spain.
Townsend, 43, served as Chief Executive Officer at Notts County between 2009 and 2010.
He was serving as the Chief Executive as Brighton and Hove Albion's official charity Albion In The Community at the time of his passing.
Gary raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity outside of his day-to-day work not least in support of 'Jadey's Dream', a fundraising campaign to provide support for more disabled people to participate in sport.
On behalf of Notts County FC, our board, and all of our staff, we extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to Gary's partner, Hannah, and his family and friends at such a difficult time for them.
