Stafford Rangers football club are devastated to hear of the sudden passing of Boro fan Steve Bull at the age of just 53.

Quietly spoken and mild mannered he was loved by all who knew him, Steve apparently had a heart condition that he kept private, not wanting to worry anyone, which epitomised the man and the great friend he was to many fans.

The football club was a great part of his life, he was a passionate supporter and for many years Steve clocked up thousands of miles following his beloved Boro on train trips and ale trails.

Stafford Rangers wish to express our deepest sympathy to his father Bob and sisters Fi and Charlotte and know all Steve’s fellow travellers, comrades and fans will want to join us in making sure they know that Steve’s Stafford Rangers family are thinking of them all.

RIP Steve.
