It is with deep sadness that Port Talbot Town Football Club have to announce the passing of Mrs Gillian Pike.

Gillian was widower of club legend the late Don Pike and mother to our current first team manager Mark Pike.

Gillian had been battling and fighting against a nasty brain cancer for the past five months which finally took hold of her earlier this morning.

Our deepest condolences go out to Mark, his wife Paula, former Port Talbot Town player Josh, current first team defender Jordan, his sister Deb and niece Amelia, as well all of their family and friends at this difficult and very sad time.

Gillian Pike will be received by St Therese’s Roman Catholic Church , Port Talbot at 5pm, on Sunday 16th February 2020. Her funeral will take place at 11am Monday 17th February 2020 followed by her burial at Margam cemetery 12:15.

She is going to be sadly missed by all her family and friends. The family have extended a warm welcome to all family and friends and join Mark and his family following the burial at Seaside Social Labour club, Dalton Road, Port Talbot

A huge thank you to Calidoct Town Football Club and the Welsh League for their understanding and cooperation in the postponement of today’s intended league fixture at Jubilee Way, with a rearranged date to be announced in the future.

Rest in peace, Gillian. She remains in the thoughts of everyone at Port Talbot Town Football Club.
