The club has sadly learned in the last few days that Ted “Spud” Nash passed away on Saturday 9 December aged well into his 90’s. Ted was a stalwart of the Albion teams just after the Second World War and turning into the 1950’s. He played mainly in our United XV but also made several 1st XV appearances and was a contemporary of the likes of other club greats Ron Hale, Jack Taylor, Jack Smith, Alan Date, DT Williams, Gordon Barrett, Bert Bastable, Cliff Anstes etc. After retiring, Ted also performed notable duties principally as a gate man – a post which he only relinquished in relatively recent years. He would stand in all weathers and miss parts of the game always intent on ensuring that anyone passing into the ground was either duly authorised or paid their way. Ted always enjoyed his involvement with the club both on and off the field – where he was of certainly good voice which contributed to the after match merriment. He and his son Gary have been regular attendees at Albion’s games for many seasons and he will be sadly missed. The club extends its sincere condolences to Gary and family on their sad loss. His funeral will be held at St Josephs, Bridgwater on Thursday 21 December at 11 am.
