Nottingham Forest Steward Falls Victim to C-19Peter Houghton
As the number of casualties climbs day-after-day eventually I’m sure we’ll all know someone who….
News came through to me yesterday of Kevin Rowson from Nottingham Forest having succumbed to the virus. Although not a Safety Officer, Kevin was a vital cog in Alan’s matchday wheel at Forest and was a well-liked guy and an important part of the safety and security team.
Known affectionately to some as “Bamma” it is clear from the activity on social media that Kevin
had a special place in the hearts of players, officials and fans alike, having been a loyal servant of over 10 years.
Safety Officers will agree that in each operation we need 300 stewards like this and in line with all the other tragic losses that coronavirus has caused, this is another guy whose family have been cheated out of remembering.
The thoughts and condolences of the FSOA are with his family and friends at this very sad time.
Rest In Peace Kevin Rowson.
