Mick Thornton

It is with great sadness that we post the news of the passing of one of Gateshead FC's biggest fans, Micky Thornton.

Micky had been ill for some time, but until very recently it did not put him off from attending and helping out at home games.

Micky was an absolute gentleman, and was Gateshead FC to the core. Indeed, his whole family have been involved in many ways supporting and working for the club and I'm sure he will leave a massive void that could never be filled at the heart of the club.

Micky passed earlier this afternoon at the QE and he was surrounded with his family.

I'm sure you will join with all of us tonight in your own way in raising a glass to 'The Old Goat' himself Micky Thornton.
