I'm afraid that I have to bring you the sad news that Eric Brackstone passed away earlier today.

Eric had been ill the last few months and still was a regular face at PVR cheering on his beloved Wings.

Eric was a pleasure to chat to and has done so much for the club over the years. He will be sorely missed by all at Welling United.

Condolences to his family and friends. Sleep well Eric, a true legend.

Very sad news indeed.

 

I have known Eric for nearly forty years and there has never been a time, even when he was very busy, or, in recent times, when he has been struggling with health issues, that he has not taken the  time to stop for a chat about Welling United or other important issues of the time.

 

In my view, since I have known him, he has done more for the club than any other supporter and despite all his problems was still managing to attend Wings' games.  Indeed he was at the recent Dartford match.

 

He truly was, as Spills has said, Mr. Welling United,  A lovely man.  RIP Eric.

Sleep well Eric and huge credit and many thanks to everyone who coordinated to get him to as many games as he was able towards the end.

More generally, Eric had his local community at heart and was often found campaigning for those who were less able to.

RIP Eric.

A lovely, lovely man. Always had time for you whether it was at the ground or elsewhere. Was Welling United to his core and remaind constant from his "bettabuys" days to today. The word legend is used too easily these days, however, in Eric's case that is exactly what he was and I am sure he will be missed by all.

RIP

The news about Eric passing is truly sad, I have such positive memories of Eric he was always smiling, positive and would always make you laugh.

Eric was Welling United through and through, he gave so much to our club in so many ways, he was a great help to WUSA when we were getting up and running, supporting the player of the month award too.

The memory that still makes me laugh to this day was his musical debut with Mr Taxman, giving it his all then. On behalf of me and I'm sure the WUSA committee we send our condolences to his family.

Sleep well Welling legend RIP Eric x
