It is with much regret to have to report the sad loss earlier today of a lovely lady and wonderful character, “Mrs Dock FC” Jean Reay, who passed away peacefully following her long battle with illness.

The word ‘Legend’ is used all too often to describe many people in football circles, often without justification, but Jean Reay was a true ‘legend’ in every sense of the word in the eyes of everybody associated with the Dock Football Club.

Deepest sympathy is extended to Gary, Mike, Lee, Pauline, Arthur and the rest of the family at this very sad time from everybody at the Dock AFC.

Jean’s funeral arraignments are as follows:
Friday 16th November 10-30am Landican’s Centre Chapel, then afterwards at the Sacred Heart Club Moreton. Gary has requested no black ties, and it would be appreciated if the Dock lads wear a Dock or Everton shirt.
