RIP Richard Collins
Very sad to hear the news that Richard Collins passed away suddenly on Sunday morning. Richard was 75 and he was still a regular at The Valley, and I’d have thought been planning on attending The Legends game yesterday.
One of the more recognizable and permanent members of the board over many decades, Richard Collins is part of Charlton Athletic’s history. He first joined the club as a director in 1981, and took over as chairman from Mark Huyler in 1983 before becoming a key player in securing the club’s future a year later.
