Former Soham Town Rangers manager Adrian Davis, has died aged 66.

Mr Davis, affectionately known as Adi, passed away after a long battle with illness on Saturday September 10.

A minutes’ silence was held before Soham’s match with Romford last Saturday, and a statement on Soham Town Rangers’ website said: “The club would like to send their condolences to Adrian’s family and friends.”
