Aldershot Town Mourn Mick Pullen

The club are deeply saddened to have learnt of the passing of well-known Steward and long-time supporter Mick Pullen yesterday morning.

Mick has for many years been ever present in the car park on match days managing the parking of players, staff, match officials, both home and away directors and the hospitality guests. A very popular and well-known character he would always find time for a chat to make people feel welcome and was often recognised by away directors on their return to the EBB Stadium.

Mick was a committed Shots supporter for over 65 years and when he became a steward he was following in his father’s footsteps as he had also been a steward for the club.

Mick will be very much missed by everyone associated with the club and our thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time.

At our next home game, the players will wear black armbands in Mick’s memory.

Such was Mick’s popularity within the club, we would like to share a few tributes from ex-players from social media

Mark Molesley: “I was deeply saddened to hear the news about Mick. I was always greeted as a player and manager by Mick. He was a buoyant character and someone I shared many chats with other the years. I will miss his presence on a matchday and my thoughts go to his family and friends.”

Adam Mekki: “What a truly great man he was.”

Harrison Panayiotou: “Real sad news, RIP Mick. Such a good soul, you’ll be missed.”

Ben Herd: “RIP Mick, lovely club man. Would always give me the inside gossip on what was going on at the club as he was working in the car park. Very sad.”

Tim Sills: Really sorry to see this. Mick was a lovely man, Shots through and through and thoroughly enjoyed our chats. He’ll be supporting on the heavenly East Bank.

Brett Williams: “RIP Mick, always so friendly.”

John Grant: “Sorry to read this. Your Dad (Mick) was always warm and welcoming to me, always smiling and having a laugh with me when I arrived at the car park. So so sorry to read this. Rest In Peace, Mick Pullen.
