Once again it is with regret that we must inform you of sad news here on TonPentreAFC.com as the Club has been informed that Bulldogs fan and former committee member Andrew Pring has passed away.
Andrew, who was very popular around Ynys Park, had been battling illness for some time and the news has been met with sadness by Ton Pentre AFC officials and fans.
Until recently, Andrew was a committee member with the Bulldogs and would regularly be seen manning the main entrance to Ynys Park with a friendly smile.
Andrew enjoyed supporting the Bulldogs and attended the majority of home and away games, pacing back and forth during nervous match moments.
Andrew was also a founding member of the 1896BULLDOGS supporters group which funded tracksuits for the players at the start of the 2012/2013 season.
A club spokesperson said: “Andrew was a lovely and kind gentleman. He adored watching Ton Pentre and those around him at Ynys Park enjoyed his company.
“Andrew was also committed volunteer who always raised his hand when the Club was asking for assistance. He was a valued committee member and supporter. He will certainly be sorely missed by all at Ton Pentre Football Club. At this difficult time our thoughts are with his family and friends.”
FUNERAL: Please note that Andrew Pring’s funeral will take place on Friday, 12th July at Glyntaff Crematorium from 1.30pm.
R.I.P Andrew Pring.
