Bill King (APL Chairman, NWCL President) or Reply Privately

Former Chairman of the Conference Bill King has passed away. Bill was instrumental in the formation of the then Alliance Premier League in 1979 along with Jim Thompson and took over chairmanship of the league from Thompson in 1989. He also had spells on the boards of Northwich Victoria, Runcorn and Altrincham and was President of the NW Counties League from 1999 to 2017 when he stepped down due to ill health. On a personal note, Bill was always approachable and always made a point of seeking people out for a word if he saw you at a game. A true servant to non-league football and a thoroughly decent bloke.
