Cobblers Past and Northampton Town Football Club are saddened to learn of the passing of former Chairman Derek Banks.
Banks came to England in 1960, a Watford supporter.
Neville Ronson sold his shares in Northampton Town to Banks, a tobacco trader, who cleared outstanding debts, and together with a consortium of businessmen gave new manager Graham Carr money to inject the side with the players he wanted.
He was Chairman for the all conquering 1986/87 season that saw Graham Carr's side storm to the Division 4 title.
We would like to send our condolences to Derek’s family and friends.
