Frances was an active member of the Supporters Club, and for a number of years the mainstay of our hospitality in the Peter O’Brien suite, particularly when we hosted Manchester City and Manchester United Reserve games. Nothing was too much trouble for Frances as she looked after the visiting directors and managers, including Kevin Keegan, Roberto Mancini, Manuel Pellegrini and Brian Kidd from City and Sir Alex Ferguson from United.
The tables were always immaculately prepared, and this professionalism was a factor in our retaining the reserve games at Club received many appreciative comments from our guests.
Frances and her co-caterer Elsie were a bit of double act, and we had many a laugh on match days, which we missed when they retired. It was therefore really good to be able to welcome them as guests in the lounge a few months ago.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to her husband Ged and her family at this sad time.
The funeral will be on the 22-11-2017 11.30 am DUKINFIELD crematorium
