His teammate Len Worley said: “I’d known him since our youth club days at Chalfont St Peter.

“It was great when I teamed up again with him later at Loakes Park where he’d already established himself as a top centre-half.

Mike was well respected, a genuine guy and it’s another sad blow this terrible year.”

Mike is the eighth former Wanderer to pass away this year, a list that includes his FA Amateur Cup Final teammate Jim Truett who died in August and 50s colleagues John Reardon, Derrick Draffan, Jack Timberlake and, Arthur Burgess, who died at the end of November.

It leaves only Dennis Syrett, Cliff Trott and Len Worley now from the famous Sid Cann XI who fought their way through five ties to meet Bishop Auckland in one of the greatest events of the club’s early history.

He played in 164 senior games from 1953 before moving on to concentrate on a successful business career that saw him in top executive positions with Debenhams and Asda.
