The passing of former North-East Junior Football Association secretary Jack Whitehead has been announced.
Whitehead was secretary of the NRJFA from 1981-82 until 2010-11 and was also the first secretary of the North/Tayside JFA in 1983 and honorary vice-president of the SJFA.
NRJFA president John Carroll paid tribute to the long-serving Whitehead.
He said. “Jack was a great administrator in junior football.
“I think for those that knew him well, it is safe to say that Jack did not suffer fools lightly, and any advice on rules, you would be directed to the rule book to read and understand.”
A minute’s silence in respect to Whitehead’s passing and in acknowledgement of his long period in office will be held before this weekend’s matches.
