Darren Pitcher dead at 49.
Dreadful news to wake up to this morning that Darren Pitcher has died at the age of just 49.
Pitcher was a mainstay of the side in the early 90’s and played in the 1992 Back to The Valley game, where he set up Colin Walsh for that famous goal. Born in the east end, he came through our academy and in all he made 204 appearances before moving to Palace.
Like others at Ewood Park on that wonderful FA Cup night in February 1994 when he scored the winner that beat the future Premier League champions, I will always cherish the memories of that night and the part that Darren played in a truly memorable Charlton win.
Such a sad shock and my sincere sympathies to his family and friends. RIP Darren.
