The one-year anniversary of the passing of Kings Langley’s “number one fan” will be marked on Saturday prior to the kick-off in their home match with Southern League Premier Central leaders Bromsgrove Sporting.

Committee member and club sponsor Matt Allcock died on January 19, 2019 after collapsing following Kings’ game in Weymouth.

The following week Langley played Staines Town and the fixture attracted a club record attendance of 1,072 in a “fitting tribute to Matt, who’s dream it was to fill the Kings Langley ground one day,” committee member Greg Lee explained.

Like for that game, Matt’s daughters Helena and Evie-May are set to lead the tributes at Saturday’s match at the Orbital Fasteners Stadium when they walk out with the teams carrying black and white balloons.

There will then be a wreath laying in front of the “affectionately known” Heatfix stand – the name of Matt’s former business – and the balloons will be released ahead of the game which the club hope will attract a large crowd.

The 46-year-old was also a long-standing sponsor of the man of the match award and it is hoped that a family member will present this at the end of the match.

Following his death, a Kings Langley club statement reflected Matt’s contribution to the club.

It read: “Matt was an inspiration to us all with boundless enthusiasm in support of the club and he, more than anyone, has done so much to engender the spirit of togetherness and camaraderie that exists throughout the club today.

“Matt will forever be fondly remembered by so many within our community. He will be hugely missed by everyone’s life he touched.
