RADCLIFFE FC will pay tribute to their long-time club photographer Peter Lee at Saturday’s home game following his death this week.

Mr Lee died following a three-vehicle motorway collision on Tuesday night as he was returning from Boro’s Lancashire Challenge Trophy match at Ashton Athletic.

Everyone at the club has been left stunned by the tragedy and plans are in place to honour him at this weekend’s Evo-Stick West game against Chasetown at the Neuven Stadium.

Boro manager Jon Macken said: “There will be a minute’s silence before the game and we will be doing everything we possibly can to show our respect to Peter.

“I had admiration for what what he did at the club.

“It’s times like these we stick together as a family at Radcliffe.

“There have been some tough times at the club in the past and Peter stuck with them throughout.

“You can tell in the work he did what the club meant to him and he has been part and parcel of what little success we have had.

“He was a part of us and we want to show our admiration for the work he did.”

Boro go into Saturday’s game third top of the table – Chasetown are fourth bottom – and are on a run of six straight wins and seven unbeaten after winning 2-0 against previous leaders Atherton Collieries last weekend.

Macken added: “You always want to beat the top, they are there for a reason

“Like I’ve said all season I think we are capable of putting in a performance and getting a win against everyone we’ve played.”
