Dave Turner Memorial

The Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust were deeply saddened, along with the Football Community of Dave TurnerSwindon of the devastating news of the premature passing of Dave Turner.  Dave was a integral member of the part time staff working for the Trust for over 12 years. Dave was a dedicated professional member of the team who made a huge difference to hundreds of local children who engaged within the Trusts programme on weekly Soccer Centres and Holiday Development Course.

For Many years Dave delivered a weekly session at Ridgeway and Dorcan with children opting to travel across Town to attend the sessions due to Dave being the lead Coach. John Burt father of Oliver Burt who lives in Stratton stated, “I travelled over to Ridgeway every Wednesday for many years so Oliver could receive the quality coaching that Dave provided . He was a truly inspirational character who got the best out of all the participants within his session. My son Oliver and myself are deeply saddened to hear the news.”

Clive Maguire Community Trust Manager said, “Dave and I were at school together from the age of 9 and both grew up with a passion for the game of football. What I loved about Dave was he said it how it downloadwas and you knew where you stood with him which I believe is a great trait in a person. Dave was one of the most genuine and nicest people I have met over the years and I am devastated to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to Trish , Alex and James.”

Marcus Cook from the STFC FITC board of Trustees commented, “On behalf of the Community Trust we are truly grateful to Dave for all his professionalism and dedication on working on our behalf within the Community of Swindon. It is so sad that someone with such a enormous character and presence is no longer with us.”
