Board Member Russell Delaney

Board Member Russell Delaney

It is with great sadness that we announce that FC United of Manchester board member Russell Delaney passed away on Tuesday after a long illness.

Russell was known to many United supporters for his generosity, diligence and good humour. Russell’s myriad of contacts in the game proved crucial in the battle to stop Rupert Murdoch taking control of Manchester United. Over the last few years he worked tirelessly behind the scenes offering advice and assistance during the supporters’ campaign to stop the Glazers’.

He was absolutely instrumental in the set-up of FC United of Manchester having worked tirelessly since the formulation of the idea for the club and, despite failing health, travelling up to Manchester often several times a week from his home in the South East throughout these past hectic few months.

The board will ensure that Russell’s considerable contribution to FC United will be commemorated.

He will be sadly missed by all United supporters. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
