GEOFF HARRISON - SOUTHALL FC 8:24 AM, Thursday, 15 March 12. News
It is with enormous sadness that the Association reports the sudden and untimely passing of Geoff Harrision, Secretary of Southall FC and the Middlesex FA Historian, on Tuesday evening.Geoff had been the Secretary of Southall for many years and worked tirelessly to keep the club alive following the loss of the old Western Road ground and subsequent difficulties experienced by the club.
Southall, who are one of the County's oldest clubs, having been formed in 1871, are enjoying a good season in the Middlesex County League and recently reached that competition's Alec Smith Cup Final.
In addition to all of his "day-to-day" work as Southall's Secretary, Geoff had spent countless hours researching the club's history and compiling meticulous records.
This skill and passion was one of the many positive attributes Geoff brought to the Middlesex FA Council. A member of this season's Football Committee, Geoff was also the County Historian and, in 2008, produced a booklet commemorating the Association's 125th Anniversary.
Geoff was popular among his colleagues in football and will be remembered fondly by all who knew him. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends at this difficult time.
