‘It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of BEADS stalwart Dave Kane.
‘Dave will be a massive loss to football in the North East.
‘He was always professional and helpful in his dealings with the NRFL.
‘Our thoughts and condolences are with his friends and family.’
BEADS players bravely opted to play their North Riding League match at Redcar Newmarket, just hours after their highly respected secretary Dave Kane sadly passed away.
They gave a strong account of themselves but lost out 4-2 on the night. Just two men scored all six goals between them. The division’s runaway top scorer, Michael Dowse netted all four of Newmarket’s strikes, while Dan Lofts blasted both of BEADS’ goals.
