Default Eric Woodfine RIP

I am sorry to bring tragic news, but my old friend Eric passed away yesterday. Most Wrexham fans over 25 years of age will have known Eric or dealt with him as he must have worked at WAFC for over 50/60 years. He processed the gate money and also organised the programme sales.
I encountered him when working at BSC Shotton in the late 70's. He was a real character, selling his Pontoon and Gold Bond tickets plus the pools and spot the ball etc. He became one of my late dads best friends.
I remember going on his trip to Burnley in 74, and seeing his Tecwyn Price coach driving around Brussels on route to the Anderlecht stadium in 76. Erics soon Nigel still works on the Turnstiles today.
The funeral is next Friday 2nd August at Pentrebychan Crem at 10.30am.

Sad to hear this news. Knew Eric from my early days with the Supporters Association in the 1970's. He gave our Club fantastic service and was highly respected . Sincere condolences to Nigel and the family.

I first met Eric working on the turnstiles at Chester Races and what fun we had.

We worked on the main entrance to the County Stand alongside each other for years. Ladies Day was the highlight of course. Whenever one of Cheshire's finest came through his turnstiles he'd give me a little kick in the shins so I'd stop what I was doing to have a quick butchers as she came in. "You'll met your future wife doing this job Andy" he would say to me. He loved a bit of banter with the racegoers male or female.

He was also head of turnstiles at Wrexham and said "what the hell are you doing paying good money to watch that rubbish for?". So thanks to him I started working the gates. Great times that I have to thank Eric for.

RIP you old charmer.

As someone who has worked with Eric on the turnstiles for a long-long time, it came as a great shock to learn from Nigel that he had passed away this week. It was only a couple of days previously that I spoke to him about prepping for this saturdays game, and he was at the ground sorting out the cash for the game on the morning of his passing. Eric was a family friend from when I was small, and his mischievousness always shone through. We enjoyed some great away trips back in the '70's that he organised or stewarded, and we will all miss him on matchdays. Rest long and in Peace.
