TOMMY DEVASTATED BY DEATH OF FORMER TEAM MATE!
Carlton Town Joint manager Tommy Brookbanks (pictured) was left devastated today following the news of the death of well known former Millers Player and close friend Andy Freeman.
Andy played for the club with Brookbanks when they were under the Snienton banner and when Roger Smith was Chairman.
Tommy told us “He had three years with me at Sneinton and also won the Midland cup with me at Ad Bulwell and Bill Stokeld was head of the local Fa at the time and he presented the trophy to us”
“Andy and I played together in a number of teams, he was a good friend and I spent time with him a few weeks ago and it was clear he was not at all well, but 55 is so young really and this is devastating” concluded Brookbanks.
Andy’s son Kieran Freeman represented Nottingham Forest and Derby County and is currently at Sheffield United.
The club sends its condolences to Kieran and all of Andy’s family and also to the family of another Nottinghamshire footballing legend Frank Hunt, who was heavily involved with local football for many years at Wollaton Fc and highly respected by many including Millers Chairman Mick Garton who he had helped in the past when Garton first became involved with non league football. Frank also recently sadly passed away.
