Derek Ufton RIP
Charlton club legend Derek Ufton has passed away peacefully at the grand age of 92.
Long before my time but a name synonymous with the history of our club playing between 1949/50 and 1959/60 seasons, making 277 appearances plus winning an England cap in 1953.
He wasn’t only a great footballer, but he was a great sportsman playing wicketkeeper for Kent for pretty much the same time making 149 first class appearances.
And for those that had met him and knew him, he was also a great man. My condolences on this sad day to Derek’s family and friends.
