CCSC has been serving supporters of Cardiff City for many years. As well as organising transport to every first team away fixture, we also arrange several events each season, such as the Children’s Christmas Party and the Annual Player of the Year Presentation Evening. Additionally, we donate money to the football club each year in the form of kit sponsorship and purchase of equipment.
Mark Watkins Celebration
The following events have been agreed in conjunction with Cardiff City Football Club to celebrate the life of Mark Watkins, who suddenly died on Saturday 14th January 2017.
1. There will be a book of condolences set up in the supporters shop next to gate 3 for those who wish to write messages and contribute in remembrance of Mark. The book will be open for a few of the up and coming home games.
2. There will be a eulogy in the matchday programme and photograph.
3. On the 27th minute, there will be a minute’s applause with a picture of Mark on the screens.
4. Half time the eulogy will be read out with a picture on the screen.
Also GTFM will be dedicating an hour’s tribute to Mark this Friday 20th January, speaking to many of his friends – please listen and contribute by phoning in.
We would like to thank Cardiff City Football club for their help and everyone who is contributing to putting together this celebration of Mark’s life.
South Wales Echo are also planning a tribute in their paper.
For those new members and supporters who don’t know Mark, a brief outline of his contribution to our football club;
- Lifelong Cardiff City Fanatic from when his dad started taking him mid 70s. 1975 was his first year
- Joined the supporters committee 1987-2012
- Presented the Cardiff City phone in on GTFM for years
- Quiz master and was more than a match for Richard Sheppard on Cardiff City History
- DJ for the children’s Christmas parties for the supporters club for at least the last 15 years, and the players presentation
A genuine nice person of this world who was also a fanatical Wales fan and loved his Music, watching bands live, taking part in pop quizzes and learning several instruments in later life.
He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed.
