Club captain Nathan Pond has penned the following message following the sad passing of club legend Ted Lowery.
It goes without saying that today is an extremely sad and emotional day, following the news of Ted’s passing.
I’ve known Ted for many years, and it’s been touching to see all the tributes from former and current players today. It shows the level of respect he had amongst players, staff and the supporters too.
I’ve known about Ted’s health now for a few weeks, and in typical Ted style he battled on without complaint. I’m certain he hung on in there to see us on Tuesday, with him now going out on a victory.
We as players, are desperate to honour Ted in the best possible way, by picking up three points tomorrow.
I urge all Fleetwood Town fans to get to Highbury in good time to pay your respects to a club legend.
Thank you for your stories, advice and memories Ted - I’ll miss you and remember you forever.
