WELL known local sports figure John Boast has died.

John, who was a popular part of the football and cricket scene for many years in Suffolk passed away on Tuesday night.

Green'Un editor Mike Bacon said: “He was down to earth, very pleasant to talk to and I know loved his non-league football. He worked tirelessly for us here at the Green'Un organising people to cover games, especially in the SIL.

“A lovely man, everyone at the Green'Un and I know in the sporting world in Suffolk will miss him a lot.”

More tributes to John will appear in Monday's Green'Un.
