Brian Baker was a key figure in the formation of the Chase Terrace Old Scholars – which would later become Chasetown – in 1954 and has been associated ever since.

Club chairman and lifelong friend Mike Joiner said Brian had been an integral part of the fabric of the football club.

“Brian will be sadly missed by all associated with Chasetown,” he said.

“For 63 years Brian has worked tirelessly for the club and for the past 33 years would be seen at the Scholars Ground day in, day out, working on the maintenance of the grounds and surrounding areas.”

Former Chasetown striker Karl Edwards was among those to pay tribute:
