David Baxter (1934-2017)
It is with a heavy heart that the club has today heard the news that club president, David Baxter passed away in the early hours of this morning following a short illness.
David was born in 1934 and joined the club in 1948 as a player and went on to become club treasurer and was the driving force behind the clubs fundraising and played an integral part in the clubs move to Summerhill Lane in 1969.
The club only last month recognised David’s achievements to the club with the unveiling of a plaque and a lunch at Steeton Hall.
Everyone at the club sends David’s family their sincere condolences at this sad time.
Past and present staff of Steeton AFC met at Summerhill Lane last Sunday for the unveiling of a plaque to mark the dedicated service given to the club by David Baxter.
David joined the club as a player in 1948 and is a past treasurer and remains the club's President. A buffet lunch for those present was then served at Steeton Hall.
