Ferguson's tribute to Dick Watson

26 July 2017

Darren Ferguson has paid tribute to Dick Watson following the passing of the Rovers president.

Dick passed away this week, aged 75, and Ferguson says his legacy will be continued by the football club.

“I’m sure his family are looking to carry on his legacy and the club will make sure to do so, it's important we do all we can to keep that legacy there.” he said.

"He's done an awful lot for this club in the time that he's been here. I'm sure everyone is aware of that and everyone appreciates that."

Rovers will celebrate Dick’s contribution to the club prior to the home game against Gillingham on Saturday August 5, and Ferguson believes it will be a good chance for people to pay their respects.

“I know the club are to do a special celebration of his life for the Gillingham game, which I think is only right,” he added.

"The club meant everything to him, he would have done anything for the club. He was a really nice man and is going to be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with his family, along with Andy and the rest of the family.”
