Farewell To Football’s True Gent – Bernard HalfordPeter Houghton
It is with deep regret and sadness that the FSOA has learned of the passing of Bernard Halford, Life President of Manchester City.
Bernard was well-loved and respected at all levels of football, putting his energies not only in Manchester City, but into football on a wider scale and shared the FSOA’s love of supporting grass roots football. Bernard was a true gentleman in every shape of the word and had a vast knowledge of how the football industry worked.
One of the fans greatest memories was when he was chosen to life the FA Cup in 2011. It was City’s first major trophy in 35 years and a proud moment for Bernard as well as the Club’s supporters.
He was a figure that was synonymous with the Sky Blues for more than a working lifetime and I’m sure everyone at the Etihad will join me in passing on their condolences to Karen and the Halford family.
