The EVO-STIK Northern Premier League would like to pass on its sincere condolences to family and friends of Alan Turvey, who passed away earlier this week.
Alan was the President of the Isthmian League, and had been connected to the league for almost 60 years as a match official, league secretary and chairman, a role he held until stepping down in 2016.
Bostik League chairman Nick Robinson added: “We have today lost a great Isthmian. Alan worked tirelessly for the league from 1978 when he became a divisional fixture secretary, and he oversaw the development of the league for over 30 years from 1982- during which time the league moved from an amateur league to the fully professional league it is now.
"He will be sadly missed by his many friends in football."
